And this is why cyclists have a bad reputation. Different country, same old attitude...

Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

Nah. Cyclists have a bad reputation because they are a minority, and minorities are judged by far more exacting standards - and are far more subject to collective blame - than are majorities. It always works like that.
