Imagine, for a moment, that you're swinging through the bends in the hills on your favourite bike. Someone comes up behind you, riding faster than you. Do you A: move over so they can get past B: ride like a cock and gas it on the straights so they can't get past I ride a pretty slow motorbike, but I like to ride it quickly sometimes. Sadly, in the hills, where I'm usually outgunned power-wise, I often find myself in that situation. I catch a slower rider in the bends where they block the way. But when the road opens up, they accelerate so I have no hope of getting past. Then, next set of corners they ruin it for me again. How about letting me past, so I can enjoy myself? Riders who play the game nicely are, in my experience, few and far between. Maybe I bring it on myself by choosing to ride a bike that everyone from L platers on Ninjas to old farts on baggers seems morally obliged to show who's the boss. Here's a tip: If the bike catches you up from behind, they're faster than you.
