A professional cyclist who lives on the Isle of Man believes better
awareness rather than lower speed limits would help riders feel safer on
the road.

The Isle of Man Cycling Association sent an open letter to Manx
politicians this week calling for reduced speed limits to aid vulnerable
road users.

Team Ineos rider Chris Lawless said issues such as "close passes" posed
a bigger threat.

"It is not speed limits that are the problem it is education," he added.


If cyclists had to abide by special speed limits there would be fewer
accidents.


Can you provide evidence to support this claim?

If the special speed limits were (say), no more than 10mph (and less in
places also used by pedestrians), would there be any reason to doubt it?

Obviously, you might doubt it, but equally obviously, I mean "doubted by
a reasonable person of at least average intelligence, exercising
reasonable judgement", which might well be... er... different.

The thread is about speed limits for *motor vehicles* on the unrestricted parts of the Isle of Man road network and NOT speed limits for cyclists, of which, there is none.

What is it about this group that causes so many members to fall out
bitterly with one another?


It's the same with Radio Hams - it attracts a lot of nutters.

This also happened to me with Judith who wrote to my employers with a load of lies.

You've dropped the bit about the non-existent visit to the BP AGM in
London, then?
