That cyclist should be shot. Regardless of whose fault it was, and
the article doesn't say, the cyclist should at the very least have
stopped to make sure the dog was OK. Despicable, cowardly behaviour,
IMO.


Maybe. maybe not.

What if he's frightened of dogs (and/or irate dog owners)?

That is meant as a serious point.


Okay, fair enough. I think its an unfair position to take, since a
motorist would never get away with leaving the scene of a serious
accident because he was 'scared'. But, nevertheless, I accept that its
possible. So, once free of the immediate area, why didn't the cyclist
phone the law shop and tell them of the incident?

"Shared path" seems to be a pretty stupid concept. Like riding on
pavements.


You are right - not just a stupid concept - I believe that in general
riding on pavements is illegal.


Really, well why didn't you say so before? People could be killed.


I have realised that there are a significant number of thickos in this
group who do not understand that traffic laws do apply to cyclists.

I do my best to educate them.

As usual, you're wrong; nothing a troll does is useful or worthwhile,
except to be used as an example to others.

CALLS have been made for the widening of a pedestrian and cycle
path after a dog was hit by a bicycle.

Anne-Marie Wilkins, 37, from Llandaff North, is starting a
petition calling for the Taff Trail to be widened through
Hailey Park after her dog Bonny was run over by a cyclist, who
then immediately rode off.

My money is on the little turd dispenser either being on a 35ft
extendable lead or not being on one at all.
Which gives the cyclist the right to simply ride off and ignore
the incident then? Cycles should be required to carry reg plates
to avoid cowardly behaviour such as this. Be nice to see some
posters condemn the cyclist leaving the scene *irrespective of
fault*, but I guess I'm asking for too much there - after all,
cyclists are beyond fault, right?

Out of common courtesy the cyclist should have stopped, IMO. Please
don't extend the act of one person to "all cyclists are beyond fault,
right?".

Stopped to be bitten?
Stopped to be attacked by the "aggrieved" owner?

Loose turd dispenser,
Loose turd dispenser is scared but unhurt by cyclist
Loose turd dispenser learns lesson
Turd dispenser's owner doesn't learn lesson and starts a petition
to spend £100,000s rather than her buying a lead

What possible help would it have been for the cyclist to have stopped?

Do me a favour, Marc. Please cycle into *my* dog and ride off. Or
rather, attempt to.

I find it much funnier to use the airzound.

Hmmmm, deliberate and intentional attempt to frighten and harrass
legitimate path user?


No, an attempt to stop the little turd rat running between my wheel and
bottom bracket, hurting both of us.

Fine, have a go. I'm reasonably confident my dog
will 'intimidate' you rather more than you intimidate it )


Whilst it's on a lead? How could it do so?

Well I'm afraid I might have accidentally let go of it.

When that happened
The turd dispenser:-
Levitated 18 inches
Rotated 90 degrees anticlockwise , whilst still in the air.
Started running at exactly the same speed I was cycling, in the
direction I was cycling.
Leaving behind it's owner calling "Doggikins" in a forlorn manner.
Looked over it's shoulder every 20 seconds to see me still there.
2 miles later it dashed for the bushes.

With a bit of luck the owner might have learnt that when it was
taking its dog out for a walk ( Dog owner speak for " taking the dog
to **** somewhere that isn't my patch") It might be a good idea to
put it on a lead.
With even more luck the turd dispenser got lost forever, died and
the owner got put off buying another one.


What a delightful piece of vermin you are. C'mon, cycle round here.
The dog needs feeding anyway.

You really don't understand your place in things do you?


You are here to have the **** extracted out of you and to see whether
it's possible to see spittle via text, it's your only function(s).


Oh I get it. Now you're attempting to backtrack your foul comments on
the basis that you were just trying to wind someone up? LOL, nice try.
Like I said, you're welcome to ride round Lincoln and see if you come
across 48 kilos of GSD coming the other way...

Is Paul Boyd a troll? LMFAO - how can you possibly cycle with that many
bullets in your foot?

A curious segment from that article;
"In May, Friends of Hailey Park and sustainable transport charity
Sustrans supported a bike safety event at the park, encouraging
cyclists to respect other path-users"

I note it's not, Cyclists of Hailey Park and sustainable transport
charity Sustrans supported a bike safety event at the park,
encouraging dog owners and childminders to respect path-users.

It takes a lot of abuse to get people up of their collective ass and
engage in such a protest. Those cyclists must be a right bunch of
arseholes and little wonder given how in here they selfishness is
defended tooth and nail at every hands turn.


Jesus wept, I take it all back. Seems there *are* some sensible people
posting in here. Such a shame they appear to be in the minority!
