How I overtake horses

I keep my distance from the riders. I ring my bell to let the riders know that I am behind them. I stay back, until the riders invite me to overtake.  I overtake as quietly and smoothly as possible, giving the horses a wide berth.  I give the riders a smile.  I think the key thing in this situation is to be completely patient: If I am in a rush for some reason, then I remind myself that I will have to make up the time later, when it becomes possible again.

There are more tips here.  There are also some positive and negative experiences mentioned here.

I’ve only had two bad experiences in the past.  In the first one I “spooked” a horse (well my noisy brakes did) and in the second one I dismounted (as I came face to face with a horse and rider on a narrow path) and promptly fell into a ditch of brambles!

Colley Hill

image

It’s been a glorious afternoon cycling on the North Downs near Reigate. The conditions of the tracks in most places reminded me of that song:

Mud, glorious mud!

Leaving York

Just before noon this afternoon, to try to avoid the worst of the weather on the trip back home.
