    Good points well made Fiona!! Recent weather conditions have made training more demanding and somewhat less enjoyable. The only real benefits being that it has probably toughened us up and added to the post ride sense of achievement: having overcome the temptations to stay home and the strong headwinds we all deserve some extra jaffa cakes.

    I, like most cyclists, will agree that sedentary, impatient and inconsiderate drivers are just as much of a nuisance as inclement weather.

    Why, when taking Grandma and the kids for a drive round some of Scotland’s beautiful countryside, do the motoring lemmings feel the need to intimidate and endanger cyclists and other roadusers?

    Does having to slow down, engage brain and indicators cause so much distress to Pavlov’s drivers? Granted that the use of indicators seems beyond them generally they would do their collective stress levels more god by taking a breath, enjoying the views and endeavouring to judicially carry on their journeys in more expedient, considerate and enjoyable ways – just a thought.

    Couldn’t agree more! There seems to be a very odd mentality among some drivers that says: I am a driver. Therefore I must, under any circumstances, drive past cyclists in a high-speed and angry fashion. INstead they could enjoy the views of the landscape or else take in some of the rather nice Lycra clad bottoms on display!
