Friday fuckwit

he's got one of those fancy office-worker bikes with the clip-in shoes.

Full on road cleat wearing and then riding on the footpath kinda exemplfies the broad gap in the type cyclists around. I don't think he's doing himself any favours or really championing basic utility cycling by wearing that sort of shoe & pedal in the first place.

If he absolutely has to be clipped in with his shoes - there are plenty of low-key alternative systems around that are much easier to walk in. They're meant to be more impulsively clipped in and out of. They come from Mountain biking and bike touring backgrounds - not that of the more image conscious blow-hard bunch-riders.

If I'm on the footpath, I expect to yield and walk amongst others as a courtesy - not merely keep riding because 'I'm allowed to'.
