Can Pounder or one of the other irrational bigots explain just what
the cyclist was supposed to do? Dismount, sprint past the pedestrians
and remount? And why does there always have to be threats of
violence?


Do what drivers always do near pedestrians. Get out and push.

What? They don't...


Indeed. I'm sure if that towpath formed part of a Byway Open to All Traffic he would say pedestrians should step aside for cars because 'It is better for the environment' if motor vehicles to do have to keep starting and stopping.

Threat of violence is against the rules.

Yes, but, toy boat owners pay Canal Tax so rules don't apply to them.

Oh I see ...


I am sure Mr Angry will tell you he pays fuel duty and why not, those toy boats get about 5MPG, Concorde got 17, making toy boats the worst polluters on the planet.

Wow!
A Boeing 787 gets about 124.


Pasta contains 1.5 million calories per tonne
So a lorry carrying 40 tonnes of pasta contains 60 million calories at 4mpg.
That is 15 million MPG/Calorie
Cycling uses 50Calories per mile.
Therefore cyclists average 300 000 MPG.

What? They don't...


Do many drivers speed past pedestrians on that narrow tow-path?


I don't know. Why do you ask?

To demonstrate its utter ignorance of logic.

.... also, because cars are dangerous pedestrians should keep out of the way.

There's nothing to stop you reading what I posted. Here are a couple of
clues that might help - I inserted the word "always" and I didn't use
the word "speeding".

You seem to have forgotten the accusations made by the pedestrian
against cyclists.

He is there on the spot.

I am not.

I assume that you are not on the spot either.

Of the three of us, which is the most likely to have an accurate picture
of the behaviour of cyclists there?
