As the author of Riding Etiquette 101, I thought it appropriate that I should share some of my learnings.
I will from time to time update this blog (“no seriously what is a blog” name did not make it past the sensor so… I changed its name.
Sometimes, I will invite comment from an engage and concerned rider to give you different perspectives.
The first item that arose regarding riding etiquette recently is at best disturbing:
How should on drink from a bidon in order to avoid showering the following rider(s) with fluid (being it from the bidon or ..shudder.. the mouth?
My strong recommendation is that you should never shower following riders with fluid, even as a joke! Doing it accidentally is offensive doing it deliberately is an etiquette “fox pass”.
Thus ensure one only opens the bidon cap just before drinking and that one should swallow before breathing out. Further one must close the bidon cap immediately.
However, if one is drafting Shaun, that is not from his bidon, so sorry. Do not draft Shaun.
