You have to question his sincerity. He was wearing a Jack Dunn Window Cleaning shirt, which to me suggests he was an employee, and that business got a slew of negative reviews after this video surfaced.Not that it makes it ok but the driver has since publicly apologized. Got to give him credit for that.
Point taken. I was just throwing that out there because I think if we want respect we need to lead by example is all. I can rage as bad as the next but, I forgive quickly as well.You have to question his sincerity.

I would like to think that I had the emotional ability to ride away, thats the intelligent-sensible thing to do..Not as calmly as that cyclist did who for some reason chose to remain there and be subjected to this abuse while the other rider was silently taping the incident.
Regardless of the "share the road" or "use the whole lane" liberties, I never ride in the middle of the lane blocking traffic if I could ride on the right side and allow traffic to go around me. Also when in group we ride single file for this reason. To me, it's a common courtesy to others and I consider it as infuriating as watching this clip to see a group of cyclists taking the whole lane having a string of cars piling up behind them IF there are other options available.
Precisely!I would like to think that I had the emotional ability to ride away, thats the intelligent-sensible thing to do..
It too worries me that some of our comrades take the whole lane when they could safely share the road. There are guys on our group rides that hug the center line on two lane roads,, its foolish, it impedes traffic and invites these types of interactions.. We need to be safe but also respectful of others.
Couldnt agree more. Posted that many times. Thanks!Precisely!
There are instances where "bossing" the lane is the safer thing to do but if there is able space for cars to safely overtake you or there are no other road hazards present then letting them do so is the right thing to do.
Yes, we are entitled to equal road use but we should not loose in the process our common sense and our courteous behavior to others.
