The "Journey's End" one (number three) is famous. I know someone who has
a print framed on his living room wall.

Why does number five put me in mind of Corn Flakes?

Obviously a grossly inaccurate portrayal, we all know, even in this
newsgroup oft told, that it impossible for a cyclist to tip over the
handlebars in a collision. This propaganda should be stopped forthwith,
before people start believing it.

If a car door opens in front of me, my first reaction is to yell and
brake. NOT to swerve into the path of the lorry which is barreling up
behind me.
Sure, I crash into the car door. But that is much better than being
squashed by the alternative.

Here we go again! "Oft told" is it?
Care to provide some examples of people claiming it is impossible?
And one rabid poster doesn't count.

It has been, on more than one occasion.

Not really, I'm not that bothered.

I don't know any posters on this group with rabies but there are many who
don't count.

Nevertheless, a claim (or story) that is unsubstantiated has not been
proved to be valid or true.


So what? Get over it.

Why aren't you riding more than a door width away from parked cars?

Because the footpath is too narrow?
