I agree, you are not very imaginative. I have seen many people like
you making up stories to get some attention. They all have a follow
up story to support it, just like you. Rather sad really.

To be fair, I have seen people riding their bicycle on the wrong side
of the road. Any I have experienced get out of the way. So my
question is - why does anybody need to be bothered about it?


The need to ask that question exposes just how stupid you really are.


Have you, as a motorist, ever overtaken another vehicle on a single
carriageway? Then you will have driven on the wrong side of the road.
(There, I spelled it out for the hard of understanding). HTH.

(Cue crybaby "but this is a cycling NG!")


Have you overtaken another vehicle on a single-carriageway, driving or
cycling around a blind bend whilst on the "wrong" of the road and unable
to see whether traffic is coming in the opposite direction?

If not, and if it's as unremarkable as you and TMS are (astoundingly)
claiming - why not?

There is no such thing as a stupid question. Only stupid answers.

You also can't answer my question.

No it does not.


It was a very stupid question to ask, and we all know that.
You have yet exposed yourself as being yet another dim wit cyclist
****head. Next time you are going to the dole on your silly little
bicycle, undertake a HGV which is turning left.

You can disregard the bit about overtaking if you prefer, though it
doesn't make the actions of that cyclist any more sane. Perhaps she was
just riding along on the wrong side of the road because she felt like
it. or perhaps didn't know any better (as a possible reason that does
have legs).

If not, and if it's as unremarkable as you and TMS are (astoundingly)
claiming - why not?

There is nothing wrong, per se, with driving or riding on the wrong side
of a carriageway when it is done for a particular legitimate purpose and
done *safely* and *lawfully*.

Go on... try to show that the cyclist described by the OP was doing
either of those things.

The Highway Code suggests pedestrians should travel on the right hand
side when there are no pavements. Wrongly or rightly, some people
probably think it applies when going slowly on a bicycle or mobility
scooter.

You also can't answer my question.

What law?

I wrote nothing to suggest it needed defending.

I will take that as a don't know. In which case there was no need to
write a reply t my question.

No need. I have Nordic genes.

Everybody saw it coming and you were stupid enough to fall for it.
Hook, line and sinker.
You are a pathetic cyclist, and that is all you ever will be.
