I donít expect someone following me to ride any faster than theyíre comfortable with. If you read what I actually said is that I get annoyed when they make no effort to keep up. I do slow down but see no harm in someone following me to at least making some effort to close the gap as we approach some lights. Thatís all.
In your initial comment you were not at all clear that you were limiting the scenario to in traffic with traffic lights. You mentioned their headlight ever diminishing, but now you say falling back to 100m and staying there. Even in the above quoted portion, if you slow down to solve the issue, how do you expect them to solve the issue without riding faster? If they are actually going the same speed as you just 100m behind, then they are already keeping up. They just aren't doing it as close as you like.
Your final remark was judgemental and unnecessary in the context of what I wrote. I thought people on these forums could actually read but maybe it isnít as common as I thought.
No judgement intended. The way I like to ride isn't "better" than yours, just different. You seem to want others to adopt your preferences (or you slow down for them) when riding with you, and that's fine. I prefer everybody to do their own thing, just on the same roads. I much prefer everybody to know the route, but if they don't, I just make sure everybody knows to wait until the person behind them clears an interesection before they move out of sight. Have made more than one multi-day trip and haven't lost anybody yet, even though we often lose sight of each other for 15 to 20 minutes at a time. Have on occasion had to back-track and find a rider with a mechanical problem or who had crashed (crashes only on dirt rides so far), but never lost anybody.
Your last comment morphed from my indication that you may not follow the "ride your own ride" philosophy (which is not an insult or a value judgement), into a reference to lack of reading skill. Both of those closing comments are unnecessary, as is commenting at all. However, only one was judgemental.
