Hit & run cyclist injures elderly woman on pavement
 
http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/9861...hen_rode_off_/

AN 81-YEAR-OLD woman suffered facial injuries when she was knocked to the
ground by a cyclist riding along the pavement like "a bat out of Hell".

The cyclist asked Beryl Hall if she was hurt and tried to help her up, but
then rode away without apologising, she said. An ambulance was called by
passer-by Brian Brown. Mrs Hall said she was also helped by a Tesco delivery
van driver who bandaged her head. She was taken to York Hospital suffering
two black eyes, grazed knees, a sprained wrist and a cut to the head, which
needed to be glued back together.

If only somebody had taken his bicycle away, crushed it, and forced
him to drive a car, the world would have become a much safer place.

Now come along, you've already won prick of the year award, so there's
no need for you to contest the runner-up position as well - despite
being in with a bloody good chance.

Doug will be along in a minute; he hates pedestrians being knocked down
on pavements by........ oh..... hang on......

But according to Doug cyclists do not injure people and even if they do
it somehow magically does not count.

Hmmmmmm

Is the photo below an example of the kind of people who barely
recognise the bicycle as a legitimate mode of transport, for whom
cycling is a bit embarrassing, who fail to see its purpose, and who
have no interest in integrating it into their

Is that the only response you have to the scientific research carried
out by a cyclist?

Face the facts.

No, I have other responses.

You posted what seems to be a selective and rather misleading quote
from an interim assessment, so I made an initial response to your
selective and misleading quote, partly in order to judge your
comprehension skills, if any.

Do you comprehend the meaning of the terms 'selective', 'misleading',
and 'interim'?

Do you have any answer to my initial questions about the kind of
people who barely recognise the bicycle as a legitimate mode of
transport? Do you find cycling a bit embarrassing? Do you get any
exercise?


Face the facts.


Which facts would you like me to face?

Who said the cyclist was going like "a bat out of Hell"?
