Thoughts On Cat6 Racing

Cat 6 racing defined, ( Cyclists have a joke about “racing in cat 6,” which, despite the name, is not exactly a race nor does it refer to an official category of cyclists. Cat 6 refers to commuter cyclists, and racing each other to work is their sport. Also called “the great commuter race” and “hipster racing,” cat-6 racing is the unspoken urban tradition of trying to go faster than, and not get passed by, a stranger on your bike. )

I would tend to agree with Rivendell Bicycle Works article Tips for Happy Riding  " If you see another rider approaching you from the rear and trying to catch you, let it happen. Fun is more important than fast."

Truth is that we should not be strangers and there is a place to race, I have had an experience like this here 

Check out more of the list here , I personally copied it into a document and checked off what I have done/know.
