COURTESY DAY

Postby dodger » 4 Aug 2020, 8:31pm

Had a regular trip through the lanes/B roads to Looe and back this morning.
Obviously busy. Looe is a big attraction for tourists. I often have a moan about the attitude of drivers but today was the most couteous day I've had for a long time.
Cars holding back and waiting and not then racing by. Cars passing considerately. Cars and vans waiting for me a passing places in the narrower lanes.
It helps to make up for those days when everyone seems to be mad.
I met a massive tractor completely filling the lane and he smiled and shouted out "Sorry", because reversing was not an option for him. He waved his thanks when I rode back 40 metres or so.
I stopped a couple of times to let waiting drivers pass and had cheery waves in each case. Sooo pleasant.
Must remember not to get complacent!!
