To be fair there is a lot of discourteous cyclists around.. when cyclists make a real effort to share the road I slow down and give them the thumbs-up. Arseholes on both sides it's just that there's a lot more cars on the road than bikes so we see more motorist arseholes
I often walk on country paths and some cyclists are absolutely reckless in their lack of consideration for pedestrians.
There is an arrogance amongst some (not saying all) of them.

Wait until you hear about motorists…
I think it's fair to say there are good and bad motorists and also good and bad cyclists.
Not tatrring everybody with the same brush.
Haven't ridden a bike for many years. I'd be scared to do so in todays traffic conditions.
If it's possible I walk or take public transport.
I do drive but don't enjoy it.

Hence why I get irritated at “share the road”

You never know, one of these fine days, there might actually be a politician that emerges that realises, conflict costs billions, and serves no purpose, other than to make arms manufactures rich. Maybe even get a politician that actually comes up with an idea to pursue peace, and that war doesn't do anyone any good, just kills a lot of innocents.

Maybe even discover that we can actually do some good by making peace an objective and might be beneficial to mankind, sink some money into developing, agricultural projects and clean water facilities in areas of depravation. Could even start looking at things that could be beneficial to the planet, such as housing people and creating jobs.

Probably take some doing though, firstly we need to rid the world of the dick-heads in charge, the ones that know fuck all about anything and think aggression is the way forward.

Unfortunately, we are in a situation that those who are elected to govern, appear to be intent on destroying the planet and are totally oblivious to the fact that it is down to them to reverse the eventual catastrophic climax.
What was Corbyn saying recently?

You might want to go and do some research on that.

Why?.......... I drive to work everyday and I know how many dickheads ride to work on bikes with no lights , wobble all over, waver out into the middle of the road and to be honest aren't bloody safe to be let loose on the roads ( same as some motorists)... I know which get the blame though........ If you are defending the arrogant two abreasts and the fact that it's legal then I need to research nothing, it's just plain stupid.

There's cynicism... there's extreme misguided cynicism.... and then there's this ^^^^

Not saying that a world war is impossible, but to imply that it's a conspiracy of some rich folk is just too too much.


Get real Reg......... Try and wake up because that's exactly what it is and why your petrol and energy prices have gone up and why the government do feck all about it.... Of course it's a conspiracy.. What the hell do you think it is? A series of coincidences?

I don't feel strongly enough about the issue to tackle a cycling radicalist like yourself.
You don’t need to “tackle” me at all, I don’t know what a cycling radicalist is but I do understand transport choices and the legalities and behaviour of different road users. So I’m willing to have a thoughtful discussion about it if you want to.

A conspiracy to create world war, specifically to kill off millions of ordinary folk? I think it's you that needs to get real!.
