When Canadian Cyclists Clash: Extreme Pleasantness

Here we go again, just 2 Canadians living up to their reputations of courtesy, politeness and general goodwill.



Truth be told, I think the absence of cars in this situation is really what allowed it to be so civil and pleasant. Instead of being encased by my car and asking rhetorical "what are you doing" questions of the cyclist in front of me, I could just ask him directly, in a decidedly non-rhetorical way, what he was planning to do. Of course I got in his way anyway. But that's totally OK; we were two Canadians out riding bikes on a sunny morning! We couldn't piss each other off if we tried!

Congrats on the BSNYC cameo! Nice change of pace from everything else being said about cycling recently.

When he shoulder checked he saw me and stayed right, waiting for me to pass.

Well done, perhaps we should call you NICEWICK.

Good Morning, Twit!
Sorry, I guess I'm a couple of posts behind.
I have yet to see a video here that I didn't enjoy. Keep it up.
