    I came across one of the worst examples of a cyclist yesterday, the "Angry Pedaller". This was yesterday, some guy on an MTB, pedalling grimly and dripping with sweat, wearing a tracksuit and orange hiviz vest, going east along the road inside Kensington Gardens.

    The problem? He was ringing his bell furiously at pedestrians and some new and very wobbly skaters, and determined not to slow down or change direction. He clearly expected all of them to move out of his royal way and was visibly angry when they didn't. He swore at me when I called out loudly "It's a park mate, slow down", LOL! Silly bugger!

    I think I've seen him riding through Marble Arch. nutter!

    Would it be illegal to have a blue light and siren on a bike?

    Sounds like he'll keel over from a coronary quite soon...

    The best thing would be to match his speed, effortlessly, cheerily negating his anger by singing out "hello pedestrian! hello skater! hello squirrels! etc, in a Rabbi Lionel Blue cheerful chappy manner. That would probably kill him off even quicker...;)
