While no ADVRiders were racing in the Tour of CA, there's more than a few of us that ride and race.

...as evidenced by the posts in this thread.

Next time you buzz a cyclist, you *could* be buzzing an inmate. Just sayin

See. You are a fuckstick. I didn't address you and yet you felt the need to defend yourself. Guess if the shoe fits and all that...

And BTW, I don't watch TV. I'd rather spend my time doing something useful. So GFU

I'm not a courier and don't ride like that. *Most* people I know aren't couriers and don't ride like that. FWI've been told even moto couriers in London ride like that.

So what's your point?

Two of the UK’s biggest motoring schools, the AA and BSM, will give learner drivers dedicated instruction on how to drive safely around cyclists.

“I am personally committed to breaking down the ‘two tribes’ attitude displayed between some drivers and cyclists. Often we are the same people,” King said. “This new module means we now have a standardised approach to teaching learners how to drive safely around cyclists from two of the country’s leading driving schools. I am convinced that this initiative will change attitudes and save lives.”

Its a start anyway. I hope it'll catch on here, but I seriously doubt it.

Never happen. US driver "training" is in such a state of worthlessness, I'm surprised it even exists anymore. The entire system needs to be rebuilt from the ground up, and the standards by which people are granted licenses need to be completely re-prioritized. The problem with this is that it would render most of the current licensees already on the road legally unfit to be there (which it SHOULD) but the costs (both social and economic) seem to be too great to our stupid politicians.

I really wish our driver (and rider) training was like many parts of Europe.

There was a thread on ADV a week ago or so about how some guy's daughter was in driver's ed, and some dude came in to lecture on driving safely around motorcyclists. Great! But then he goes on to tell them that helmets are worthless above 15 MPH because your head falls the same distance anyway. Then he hands them a bunch of ABATE materials. Fucking jackass.

Wait, what? Those words came out of his mouth like that? I have no idea what they mean. I understand all the words, but putting them in that order doesn't put together a concept I can understand.

p.s. I bicycled to work today.
