No details yet, but I wonder if the bike had dropped handlebars?

Have you actually read the story?

It's about a cyclist, on a cycle, who was cycling.

IOW, it was right on-topic.

No need to. Have you actually read the comment added by Cheerless?

It's about a cyclist, on a cycle, who was cycling.


It does appear to be something about a person riding a bike. A word in
the link gives the clue.

IOW, it was right on-topic.


Who says it wasn't?

I have, and make no comment on it save for observing that the musing on
"dropped handlebars" seems relevant.

It's about a cyclist, on a cycle, who was cycling.

Why start talking about drivers?

The story isn't about drivers.

It was about a cyclist.

Those are a good idea, then you can ram arseholes who think it's funny to
tap their brakes when they think you're driving too close.

I ****ed off a cyclist the other day, after the car in front did the
same. You know those cheap **** tarmac layers councils put down with
loose stones, where you're meant to go 20? Well they seem to hurt
cyclists when you overtake them at speed :-)

They don't tend to drive into parked ones.
