"85% are not covered at all."

But we are always told the vast majority of cyclists do have insurance
and how their fridge freezer cover applies to bicycle riding.

Of course, probably 100% of pedestrians do not have insurance. This is
hilarious, and what we've come to expect from an anti-cycling troll who
should be found and shot in the face. More complaints about cyclists not
doing something that they're not legally obliged to do.

There's the problem right there.

Money.

As rich as all cyclists apparently are (they're all in the top 0.2% of
earners, you know), that sort of sum for insurance will be beyond almost
all of them.

So car-drivers waste^wspend more. Well done them! (apart from the
environment, hassle to legitimate road users, and the affect on their own
obescity).

Please cite one example of someone claiming fridge freezer insurance covers bicycle riding.

"We" have never been told by anybody that rides a bike that fridge
freezer cover applies to riding a bicycle.

Looks like Posford is getting some free advertising for his business.

The article gets confused between bicycle insurance (which I don't have)
and third party.

When it says "In Germany, it is compulsory for adults to have personal
liability cover”, we have to assume it is "compulsory for adults", as it
says, not something specific to riding bicycles. Hence not relevant. Of
course we could have a similar system to Germany - but that would mean
the non-cyclists here would have to have it for the 10 yards a year that
they walk.

My innertubes are covered by Lloyds.

We are all waiting for you to cite such a case.
Do you have one or are you mature enough to admit you are wrong?

He is not 'wrong', because it was not a genuine claim. It was a troll.
And he should be dealt with the same as all trolls.
