Obvious ones are not touching the bike before donning the helmet, and reverse ordering it. Then there's the 7m rule for drafting. I mean, you lose the draft if you're half a metre off the wheel. Of course it doesn't apply at Olympics, why not?
Then mandatory foot down at certain junctions. This is distinct from a full stop.
- I've witnessed this technique and can't see that it actually helps safety.
--You have the high speed unclip, scrape floor, reclip and tank off.
--The low speed unclip, touch down, wobble, look at feet enter junction, wobble, try twice to clip in again.
--And the steady approach, look at traffic, ignore the rule and cycle smoothly onwards.
--I've even seen the approach smoothly, unclip right foot, check traffic, turn left and fall on floor because the wrong foot was unclipped.
Any more stupid rules?
