A chat with some oldies...
« on: October 04, 2016, 10:17:00 AM »
Had a friendly chat with some oldies outside that village hall thing on Mumbles Road between Clyne and the Woodman last Thursday evening. They thanked us for slowing and waiting for them to pass - we were on the pavement after all - and that led to a chat about how "not all cyclists are so careful and Thursday nights after dancing are terrible with riders zooming past and one Thursday evening some youngsters nearly crashed into us." etc

I explained that 'youngsters' were unlikely to be part of our group, and that we all tended to be pretty careful as of course we're not strictly supposed to be on the pavement etc. Anyway they were cool, but worth noting that they're often coming out of their dancing evening at about the time when we're riding past so worth being super careful, considerate and friendly to avoid any potential conflict.
