    I concur. Set example to those drivers who think they own the road and can drive on the wrong side.

    Why did the parents allow the child to run onto the pavement unattended?
    Why wasn't the child wearing a hiviz jacket (SMIDSY)?
    Would the child have sustained lighter injuries had they been wearing some form of body armour?
    Not the cyclists fault as far as I can see. Cool
    I bet the sun was in his eyes too...

  • Giro d'Italia stage 131 day 10 hours ago1 have 10 transfers left but

    1 have 10 transfers left but annoyed I should have kept Felline as he did better than a lot of the guys I bought in. At least I had a bet on Kyrienka first thing that has gone right for me in the last fortnight. The question now is to gamble with Porte or give him the shove, because there is no opportunuity to make lots of swaps.

    So these 'representatives' of motorcyclists are 'sympathetic' towards cyclists, but object to the reallocation of road space to vulnerable road users?

    Maybe they are concerned that it will be harder to 'share' the new, largely-segregated facilities than is currently the case (albeit completely illegally) with Advance Stopping Lines, which frequently seem to have a biker or two parked in them alongside the cyclists for whom they are intended.

    Spot on. Filter through stationary traffic to get to the ASL and there they are - a row of motorbikes double as wide as me in the ASL. I tend to go past them and stop in front of them - effectively creating an "Advance ASL". I find that annoys them a tad, especially when I can't get clipped in on the odd occasion. More annoying to me though is when they use the blue lane to the left of motorised traffic at a vastly faster speed than the average cycling speed, then hoot for you to get out the way.

    This plus a thousand. The kid could have run into the road and under the wheels of a car and this would have barely have been a blip on the radar of the sun and the right wing media in general.
