Often it is hard to explain to someone that doesn’t cycle what it can feel like to be on a bike. The information video from Norway shows pretty much what it is like. No one would stand for this sort of behaviour in a shop, but cyclists are expected to put up with it on the roads.

In Norway they found that 70% of cyclists had experienced aggressive behaviour from motorists. Norway of all places. I don’t want to stereotype Norway as totally peace loving, tranquil nations, but they do have one of the highest standards of living and one of the happiest countries on the planet.
