Being a cyclist that does a good 10 miles per day, I get the odd moron come close to hitting me, so I invested in a head camera to record my commute in case I get knocked off and the driver denies all responsibility. Having a bike worth a decent amount of money I don't fancy being left out of pocket if some numpty floors me so it'd work as evidence in my favour... I mentioned this in the Latest Purchases thread and seem to have provoked a decent enough response to start a new topic. Different folks have different standards of cycling. Anything that comes within arm's reach (indicating) is a close pass as far as I'm concerned. Bearing in mind his camera gets 170 degrees of vision a lot of the passes seem a lot further out than they are. He doesn't use cycle lanes because: 1. He goes too fast to use cycle lanes* 2. Some of the cycle lanes are far too narrow to use, or are already occupied.** *The DfT in London specifies that a cycle lane should be (at least) 4ft wide, and cyclists should cycle at least 3ft from the kerbside. **They also say that anyone who regularly exceeds 18mph shouldn't use a cycle lane. Maybe you shouldn't ride so close to the kerb then. I'm not criticising your cycling, nor am I condoning it (I have no clue what your idea of safe is), and not everyone gives as much space as possible to cyclists, hence some of them ride defensively. It was literally a recall of seeing that as an example video and a reposting, it's not my video (My channel to be linked shortly). I've never seen a war between cyclists and drivers, but there are plenty of misjudgements on the road. I complain about bad driving, but on my channel (as with Gaz's) I regularly thank people in my videos and post videos of cyclists doing daft things (myself included). I don't get the first part of your statement, but I'm sure it'll be one of his dafter encounters. He's actually got a new channel and he's a lot less confrontational with drivers. This is my headcam channel, with some older videos from my handlebar mounted camera. If some of the videos seem like they didn't need naming and shaming there's probably still a good reason I posted it, as with many of the other cyclists using cameras, so just ask .
