Wellington Commuters: Nutter On Bike Warning...

Postby HappySmurf on Mon 6/Jul/09 12:39pm

Wellington commuters:
There's a guy that I usually see cycling on the Kaiwharawhara cycle path in the mornings, just after 9am when I'm late for work. He's headed out of town while I'm heading into town. Always ignores a friendly acknowledgement. Racing bike, he's in his work clothes, helmet slung over handle bar.
So this morning he decides to play chicken with me. He sticks to the side of the path (American road rules) which is conflicting with my NZ road rules. Of course I'm not sure if he'll jink aside so I stick to my line. He bounces off and crashes - His bike goes onto the road. I stop. He gets up and rushes over ready to fight. Has a mouth on him like that bogan chick I met on the Hutt cycle path once. Anyway, it transpires that me and "all my mates" - I guess that's you reading this - need to get out of his way. Amongst all the invective, and the invitations to fight, he never came up with a reason why.
So if you wish to avoid someone with a chip on their shoulder bigger than a calved iceberg, watch out for this guy.

Strange, weird idiot. The cycle lane actually shows you where you should be. If you keep left you'll notice all the bike piccy's designating a bike lane are up the right way.....if you're on the wrong side they're upside down......smack'in down again tomorrow..... :satan:

Yeah I've seen that guy. I yelled at him to put his helmet on, and he tried to have a go at me. Wanker.

Now if only he used his anger for good, like having a head on with all the parked cars in that cycle lane....

Now I dont get that response, esp from someone whose tagline basically submits to bondage.
