Cyclists really are road lice.

As I've always said, it isn't all of them, only most, these days.

The traditional Courteous and Co-operative Man On A Sensible Bike With
Straight Handlebars isn't the problem.

It's all these idiots who (in their own heads) are riding the Tour de
France, or some "sportif" somewhere, a really good example of which is
seen in the video at that link.

Presumably this is "acquired information, much of it gained in this very
NG"?

All information of value is acquired.

The only alternative is to fabricate it.

I don't recommend that latter course, but am well aware that such advice
often falls on deaf ears hereabouts, where fabrication is frequently
preferred.

If you have a few moments to spare, take a look at last week's "Room
101" on the BBC iPlayer. You don't have to watch the whole of it. The
item is the last of six, so start at around the 23 minute mark. The item
(suggested by an actor Lawrence Fox) immediately follows that on 12
string guitars by some American whose name I can't recall.



Series 6, Episode 7:

I shall emphasise your word "much".

Information of no value is also acquired. People often have a habit of
placing value in something of no value.

The only alternative is to fabricate it.


Considering your refusal to meet to point out your problem it is only
possible to conclude that you're chicken.

Please bear in mind Nugent is a long term mental health patient and not it touch with the real world.
His access to the internet is on a reward basis and I am guessing he has been eating his Broccoli and Avocado this week.

Do you have a point, or points, you are trying to make?

Statements such as the above aimed at any other group, would be
unthinkable.

But cyclists? The new Jews.

The traditional Courteous and Co-operative Man


In England, 'cooperative' means 'get out of the way of car drivers'.

On A Sensible Bike With Straight Handlebars isn't the problem.


There you have it. Anyone who rides a bike with dropped bars is 'not
sensible'.

It's all these idiots who (in their own heads) are riding the Tour de
France, or some "sportif" somewhere, a really good example of which is
seen in the video at that link.


So many prejudices, and he doesn't even try to conceal it.

1.25 million road deaths globally in 2013. If UK figures are replicated
across those areas, 0.01% of them caused by cyclists.

You _****ing_ spastic.
