A gentle nudge off the road…

So, driving to work along Enterprise Rd this morning, I was witness to something which always, without failure, manages to get on my tits.

There we were, cruising along, and those that know Enterprise will bear witness to the clearly-marked, reasonably well-paved cycle track on the ‘Borrowdale’ side of that road, which stretches all the way to the Grange. That’s about 15km of track, yet there’s always some daft git on a bike weaving along down the traffic lane.

I mean, you have to be stupid as fuck to test your wits against Harare drivers at any time, but rush hour on a bicycle? And you have all these dumb-asses, mostly security guards and whatnot, cruising along just on the edge of the road, weaving this way and that – it’s enough to drive you nuts. But I’ve decided to do something about it.

Next time you’re driving down a road with a cycle lane, and you see one of these wannabes, just pull up alongside him and give him a light, gentle push off the road. Of course he’ll go careening off on a tangent, probably ending up marooned in a hedge, but fair go, right? If you wanna play with the big boys, you gotta take the flak.

Go on, just have a go, and see how good you feel afterwards…
