Got myself into a serious situation last weekend,all my fault entirely.So I am doing a lap of The Old Rd,its Sunday,weathers great,bike is going well.Heading toward The Pie in the Sky I see a tight bunch of pus hikes,maybe 10 or 15 followed by 2 cars. My first thought is buggar,this will stuff my run down the hill. Then the 2 cars pull into The Pie and I think great I will be able to pass this tight bunch on the reasonably long downhill straight after a couple of corners.Thats the plan.I know the road well and have donkeys years of experience so expect no drama. Get to the straight with broken lines and 2 lanes heading the other way and out I pull expecting still to see a tight scrum maybe 2 or 3 car lengths long.I accelerate hard to get the pass over quick,the bike isn't the fastest out there but I expect it to get past,that is till I see this tight bunch has become much longer,the leaders has taken off easily doing 70 to 80ks and still 2 wide but now maybe 10 car lengths from front to back. I am also doing 80 and maybe a bit more still over the doubles and fast approaching a blind 35k left hander.O shit this isn't good. I find a gap and tuck in before the bend,luckily its big enough and not closing up. I am far from those who pull closing gap overtakes usually but this surprised me one hell of a lot.My first expedience with a downhill fast moving Pelolon and it will be my last. If it had been on the flat or uphill it would be been easy,or 1 or 2 bikes.Live and learn,there are lots more pushys around these days,I should have taken a hint as to how serious this bunch looked.I will defiantly next time.
