Helping bicyclers

People have a lot of opinions of bicyclers but there is something that irritates me a lot. Its when cars park in the cycle-lanes – cars, vans, buses etc. Obstacles that forces the cyclers to enter the car-field. I drive a lot and see this often, it annoys me.

A few days ago I drove next to to a bicycler and ahead there were a parked car in the cycle-lane, I slowed down to give him room but further ahead there were more cars. I signed to him that he could cycle in front of me and I gave him a thumb up when I drove behind him for a while. When I turned off to another road he waved and smiled – it was fun! I recommend doing this, we all have a responsibility in traffic and I felt that this was a nice way of doing my part. Will you try? 🙂

If you want to go further, a guy have made this template to give the parked cars, you can find it here, its made by mrjorgen.
