Unless you are saying it was a cyclist who through the concrete, I can
see no connection to cycling.

When this happened
It was treated as murder.

Manslaughter (can you not read?).

Originally treated as murder.

That hardly matters.

The case was originally treated as murder, that is a fact.

When this happened
It was treated as a childish prank.

A rope stretched right across Egrement Promenade?

Are you claiming it didn't happen?

Not at all.

I am at least as aware as you of the regard in which cyclists are held
by the majority of people.

And that is OK with you?
If 'the majority of people' decided to exterminate all left handed redheads what should the authorities do?
Supply names, addresses and weapons? Or protect the minority?

It must be sixty feet
wide between possible anchoring points and the rope would be very
visible at normal approach speeds.

At night?

Don't cyclists use their low powered version of headlights at night, then?

The vast majority do, thanks for your support.

Or doesn't it matter whether or not they do use lights because they
stare at the ground below the front wheel in an effort to achieve and
maintain speed?

The primary vehicle is question is pictured in the article.
Anyone with a brain bigger than that of a fruit fly can see it is designed for an upright riding position.

As it happens, I distinctly remember that cycling was banned on the prom
(yes, all the way from Seacombe to New Brighton) when I was a boy.


The picture shows a cycle lane.


You admit cyclists can use the prom in question.

Did Merseyside Police ever manage to trace the alleged prankster?

Do your own research.

It was unjustified and all that, but I'm really not that bothered about
the case.

So you think it is OK to attempt to murder cyclists?

One might have expected yopu to be a bit more exercised about it.

But clearly not.

Have a problem with women, do you?

Unlike you I am not sexist or racist or religionist or vehicleist, people are people.
