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.


Is there NO difference between walking and riding a bike, then?

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.


You know absolutely nothing about me. I do not give cyclists a bad name.

If you want to be constructive try suggesting why a person should walk a
bicycle where someone else can drive a car.

In the situation we are talking about, the word is *respect*.
BTW, the road was closed.

Of course it is.

Legally? All boxes ticked, risk assessments carried out and all council
and police expenses paid?

It might sound as though I am making light of things but the article
carries a distinct whiff.

Not when speed is similar.

Yup, that is the whiff of disrespect.
We'll have to agree to disagree on this.

They always have been scum and always will be scum.


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.


Back in those days people interacted with strangers on a daily basis and thus had good manners.
Now these same people drive and regard strangers as inconvenient obstacles delaying their journey.
Heinlein was right.

Anybody asking for "All boxes ticked, risk assessments carried out and

disrespectful ****wit and should be shot.


I wrote this and I hope you realise the irony. But as we have been told
many times in this group, there is an almost god-like authority that
knows best and everything MUST BE done according to it's rules and laws;
intelligence, pragmatism or common sense in the individual is not permitted.
