We pass by other cyclists almost every time we are on our bikes, but we rarely ride with them long enough to establish an understanding of their habits. I’d wager that many of us ride alone or with friends who all ride alike. Maybe you ride tandem, and have come to some kind of team consensus.
Still though, we pass others a lot (or curse those who pass us). We pass silently. Being judged and judging. We ask ourselves – why do they do that?
This weekend as I was riding with a heavily loaded pannier I wondered, does everyone place it towards traffic like me? A few tweets back and forth to other cyclists and a few more cycling mysteries were uncovered. Which foot do you drop when you stop, and how does that relate to your dominant hand? Are you the only person who obeys the rules of the road? Do you signal turns, and how? Given how many mysteries there are, I made a poll to capture the trends among DC area cyclists. I’ll break the results down and post up the results for all to see.
