Some of the lanes around Broadford here on Skye are just wide enough for a car and bicycle to overtake and most motorists are very polite. There is great waving of hands with saying thank you for waiting.
I was pedalling up a hill on one of these lanes when a minibus stopped ahead of me and waved me through. Well, Bradley Wiggins I am not and I made my best effort to reach the bus in the shortest time possible. As I approached I waved my thank you and as I came alongside, the driver wound down her window and both she and 20 passengers clapped as I passed. I am not sure who laughed loudest.
