Bradley Wiggins et al need a good hidin!

Now, Im fundamentally not against cyclists as I used to cycle alot myself but! Over the last few years there is a new breed of cyclist ....... the A-hole cyclist!

Two abreast on a 60mph road with a mile tail back behind them, would he move over and let cars that want to do 60mph while he continues his tour de france hyper speed of 12mph, .....would he heck! ....feckin A-hole.

Never come to France then!


It's the Mountain bikers who scream "OUT THE WAY!!!" as they hurtle down forest tracks and
bridleways that grip my ****.


Maybe they get treated so badly whilst on the road that they think it's payback when they are hors piste?

My old apartment was called Residence "Les Vielle Putes"

Well that's what I told people.



(It was actually "vieux puits".)

Out for a run this morning and some prat on a mountain bike decided that a red light meant go for cyclists - almost had me and nearly fell off his bike trying to avoid me. If I hadn't been so knackered (near the end of the run) I might have taken the oportunity to educate him about road protocols. As it was I merely reminded him "politely" the red meant stop.

Sick of seeing cyclists on the pavement when there is a cycle lane clearly marked not 2 metres from them. Sick of them going through red lights on pedestrian crossings. Sick of them on the pavement by shops so you have to look both ways before you leave the damn shop. But particularly sick of the one who hit my dog and ripped the ligaments out of her right back leg causing her pain and grief for 3 months while the cartilage formed around the damage. This on a river path clearly marked No Cycling.

Arrogant righteous b******s.

To be fair', given the ridiculous state of some cycle paths round
here, I'm not surprised some end up in the road.



Recliner bicyclists are the biggest menace on the road.


There are two in the area each of whom cause massive tailbacks
on the roads into the park every single working day.

It's sure to end up some kind of bent at some point.
