  • AWTK: Old ppl and bikes

    Well i have now been waved to slow down or pointed at and heads shaken by old/older ppl who obviously dont agree with bikes?? (making noise or going faster than cars)

    once i was in a suburban street not going that fast but making a bit of noise which got some old lady looking like she was doing the mexican wave at me trying to obviously tell me to slow down or something

    and this morning taking of from set of lights going to uni... i had an old dude walk across the road and point at me shaking his head...

    is it just me or does this happen to others???

    You should be safe from this sort of behaviour on weeknights between 1830 and 1900.

        I didn't realise Neighbours had such a cult following.

          It's just you. The universe is trying to communicate something to you, methinks.

            No offense, but it might be something to do with the way you ride and/or the noise your bike makes as I have rarely had people react like that in 28 years of riding.

                    I have got a few oldies shake their heads at me... All of them have happened at the shelley river-run, I wasn't speending in most cases so I'm pretty sure they weren't happy with me disturbing their peaceful evening with my obnoxious exhaust noises.

                      Just tell them it's a safety feature; if those deaf old bastards can hear you, then so can other road users.

                          In my experience, there are plenty of old people who like bikes. The ones that I see complain more often/louder are the 30-45 age group who think everything needs to be legislated... just think of the children!
                          “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa
