Now this really boils…

Riding on the road.

3 yards to their’ left is a bloody Cycle track.

Why in the name of fuckery do they do it?

8.15pm, raining, just about dark, driving home from yoga, proper organised cycle race on public 'b'roads, cunts riding 2 abreast with no lights or nuffink. barely fucking visible.


been a cyclist myself for years and years and ting. used to average about 300 miles per week. the rules of the road are the RULES OF THE TWATTING ROAD! they are there for the benefit and safety of us all!!!


and double grrrrrrrrr!!!!!!

Bastards. Especially when there are three of the cunts riding next to each other at 5mph on a road full of blind corners so you can't pass.
My most memorable one was when I was driving through Clitheroe, this dilhole pulled out on his bike making me shove the brake through the floor, and he gives me a cheery wave. It was Adam Hart Davis. On a bloody penny farthing. In pink and yellow lycra.

curse them
they use mobiles while cycling on roads

they go through red lights

they speed down hills

if a car hits a bike - high likelyhood of death
if a bike hits a pedestrian - slim death liklyhood

so....... put bikes on the bloody pavements. and leave the roads for cars.

I seem to remember studies showing
that if you cycle politely, stick to cycle lanes on roads and keep as close to the curb as possible, you're more likely to be killed by a driver because they take less care. Cycling practically in the middle of the road is much safer as nobody tries to overtake you when there isn't really enough room.

Also that if you wear a helmet, drivers assume you're more experienced (despite the reverse generally being true) and so take less care and give you less room.

I mostly agree
A lot of Cambridge has extra-wide pavements, for pedestrians and cyclists, which are mostly ignored by the cycling population, and that really pisses me off.

However, and this is especially true in London, some cycle lanes are in such poor condition (broken up tarmac, stopping and starting in the most bizarre places etc) that one has no choice but to ride in the road instead, otherwise one's bike will be completely knackered.

Moreover, the amount of drivers that park in cycle lanes is huge, so cyclists have to keep swinging round them, into the road.

This might well be one of my peeves when I get round to posting...

... most cycle tracks are about 100 metres long before they end... My cycle journey would be 3 miles.

So, whats the point when I'm an entitled road user?

if there is no cycle paths, fair play. Up here in the merry ol' North East, there's zillions of 'em, purpose built duel cycle & footpaths, that stretch right round the estate; miles & miles of 'em. Yet you still get Mr Spandex with dino helmet on the fecking road, despite there being the safer option.

Baffles me, really does

I agree
I've been cycling to work on and off for 18 years. I also walk and once in a while drive a largish V8 coupe. There are cycle paths throughout this fair city and most of them are in fair condition but could stand some repairs. So what does our addle brained government do when some cyclists started kicking up a stink? Narrows the lanes on roads designed right from the start for cars so that cycle lanes can be placed on the edges. Parallel, fer gawds sake with the existing cycle paths over multi- kilometre distances. Complete and utter wankery. Most cyclists have enough sense not to use them. Who wants to be passed by heavy trucks doing 80kph (50mph) at a range of three metres? The air blast could knock you off your bike.

And to those in the Lycra clown suits. The public cycle and foot paths are not the route of the Tour de France.
