Clipless pedals and decked out in spandex

... It's sort of annoying how they will try to pass you when cycling... and then run out of steam and slow down... It is as if they want you to stare at their ass or something... I don't wear spandex while cycling, or have clipless pedals. I have a pretty shitty bike compared to these cycle idiots who have money. Once they pass me, I decide to crush them on some hills. Uphill and downhill. I wish they'd just let me enjoy my day without cutting me off and then going slow as fudge. I hate spandex cyclists because of their cycle etiquette!

... like having them pass, then passing them.

It's just a friendly competition.

I've been a cyclist for most of my life and it's so amusing to see them bust their ass to pass and then they slow down and you end up passing them anyways.(many assume because I'm a woman,I must be slow)

Wait until electric bikes are so affordable middle-aged people in jeans are passing you and the serious cyclists.

Yeah, so if I've been cycling to school and work since 1970 and logged god knows how many thousands of miles and tour 3 or 4 weeks every summer and never owned a car and went clipless in 1995 when I was into 24-hour mtb relays and wear spandex because my commute is 32 km round-trip and follow the rules, smile at everyone and am courteous as fuck, am I also a bad person and bad cyclist because I decided after decades of trial and error my middle-aged undercarriage NEEDED padded shorts and that riding home from work at midnight pouring rain and 3 degreees requires something a little more tech than a cable-knit folksy sweater and corduroy pantaloons? No, I'm actually a pretty great cyclist. I'

Oh man

And they pull up RIGHT BESIDE YOU at the light, only to have you dlam on your brakes the whole way down a hill, unable to safely pass because they're all over the place. Such a joke.

Annoying Ones

I work in a school and we teach kids how to line up in formation. I'm a leisure cyclist commuter, it drives me nuts when you are stopped at the lights and bike hero creeps up on your left side waiting to get ahead. Basic manners, line up like everyone else. And as you put it, you end up cycling at the same speed as them.

Even more annoying for pedestrians

Those spandex fools take no notice of pedestrian crossings. Just ride right at you. I used to live by the 10th Ave cycle route in Kits. Crossing it was like running the gauntlet.
