I think it's about time I confess some of my sins, and also rant a bit. I also open this up to anyone else who needs to get something off of their shoulders due to their ride-to-work antics. Or any other riding idiocy. "I'm a stupid rider, and I'm powerless." Lately I've been squidding. I know, it's shameful. I've been riding the 30mins to work with the only leather on my skin being my gloves, belt and shoes. To top it off, my lane splitting is getting more aggressive - I'm taking more risks and giving other vehicles less chance to catch me in their mirrors before I overtake. There are some rides to/from work where once I hit a quiet spot I say to myself "I can't believe I just did that". Clearly I've forgotten how painful it was last time I got hit by a car - and that was nothing in comparison to what could happen. So here's to me making a reform - I commit to wearing my jacket on every ride, at the LEAST - pants & boots as I improve. I will leave home 5 minutes earlier so I'm not tempted to cut traffic dangerously. I will not read every single gap between lanes as a sign to cut - especially when it's two busses. I will adhere to the recommended speed limit + 10% and no more. Because I'm a stupid rider, and I'm powerless. Had to get it off my chest - before I get myself killed! On a plus side - a while ago I mentioned spotting a female rider on a white cruiser across the Anzac. Spotted her again - rode straight past but I was cutting moving traffic at 80kmh and didn't get a decent glimpse. Has anyone seen this rider before? Or know her? Seeeeeems decent. Could be my biker goggles lying to me though.
