I don't accept that cyclists have always been scum.

They may (in the main) be so *now*, but the man who used to call to
collect my grandmother's Prudential money each week was respectable,
law-abiding, considerate, pleasant and even wore bicycle clips on his
suit trousers.

50 years ago cyclists were, in general, law abiding, respectable,
respectful road users.

My point precisely.

Cyclists are angels compared to the moped muggers.
Now they really are scum.

If they "came haring through" how come there was time to have a
conversation with them?

Perhaps the riders could have been more sensitive to the situation but
similarly there are many people that are over obsessed with the idea
there is some sort of difference between walking and riding slowly.

Come on! the cyclists were bloody disrespectful. There's no other way to
paint it.

It the road was closed to through traffic, the correct thing to do was
to wait until the end of the ceremony or find another way round.

They did not do that but people want to make an issue out of them not
getting off to walk.

I have driven through a ceremony where they obviously didn't get
permission to close the road. Should I and all the other drivers going
through have got out and pushed?

You're attitude stinks. I would have immediately dismounted and so would
any other members of my family.
It's cyclists like you that give decent cyclists a bad name.
