Some serious anger management issues here 14:08 - Sep 10 with 1967 viewsStokieBlue

Especially since the cyclist was totally in the wrong:

The fella in the rickshaw? type thing is a hero amongst men. Have never seen such urgency since Douglas trying to beat his man.

A lot of cyclists think they are above the law and the road must cede to their use - he should be put away for that assault.

He we go, I knew this would be an invitation for an attack on cyclists in general.

Congratulations on being Mr Predictable.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

To be fair to Joe, he said a lot, not all.

He's right. There are a lot.

Yes, the same as car drivers etc etc.

When on a bicycle, my anecdotal experience is that most drivers are arseholes who think leaving 3cm of room is enough.

Bonus points for overtaking on blind corners to save a whopping 3 seconds.

Basically I think the common denominator whatever mode of transport is that people are idiots.

That’s right by my office. London is especially bad for cyclists going through red lights. I’m not sure why cyclists feel the need to go through red lights anyway.

Going through a pedstrian crossing while the lights are red and there are pedestrians actually crossing is doubly rude.

I've seen equal stupidity on both sides. I think there needs to be more done to warn cyclists of the risks of not obeying the highway code though, for their own safety mostly. Some have a really bad habit of coasting in blind spots.

Also think cyclists need insurance, had some pr1ck smash into my car, take my wing mirror off and ride away after helping him up a few years back. If I had of known he'd do a runner I'd have chucked him in my boot and dragged him to a cash machine.

This issue for me is that cyclists are the 'weakest' road user, but yet often their aggression doesn't marry up with that fact.

I'm generally a very considerate driver, but especially so with cyclists because you can see their vulnerability, think more needs to be done on both sides - but ultimately if there is a collision you'd rather be in a car than on a bike

As someone super aware of motorbikes on the road due to doing a CBT when younger and understanding how vulnerable you are on two wheels it amazes me how reckless some cyclists are. I think all drivers should do a CBT as part of their test as it would solve a lot of the problem. If you've been on a bike you have a new appreciation of where to look and how to see them. Might have saved my Dad spending 3 years in a metal frame and a lot of hassle too.

It’s not really about cyclists, pedestrians or drivers as there are idiots on all sides. Sometimes the same person can be perfectly fine in one mode of transport and an idiot on another.

Other times there are just accidents. I was hit by a woman pulling out from a parked position on my way home about 6 months ago. She was stupid and didn’t check her mirrors properly and pulled out across a painted cycle lane but I don’t believe she did it on purpose or with malice – it was just one of those things.

We need more people to cycle in our cities, it’s better for pollution levels and it’s better for people’s health. In order for that to happen we need to have a proper debate about how to accomplish this safely. The blueprints are there from cities on the continent, it will just take a lot of will to get drivers to accept fewer roads and routes as separated cycle paths become required. Along with that we need the vast majority of cyclists to understand that they need to obey the rules for the safety of everyone else, not just themselves.

It’ll take time but hopefully we will get there.

I'm not against any of that, I know it won't be many years before my kids will want to be cycling places and I fear for that with how I see people drive around cyclists and how vulnerable they are.

Guess it will just get added to the list of things to think about when Brexit is done in 2033

Exactly, I drive and cycle in a rural/ small town environment I can count on one hand the stupid/law breaking cyclists I’ve seen, yet every ride there are multiple drivers probs 1-4 giving a couple of cams space and overtaking into oncoming traffic or overtaking on a single narrow country lane.
For every nob cyclist there are hundreds idiot drivers in my experience
