Yes, another thread complaining about a driver, sorry Yesterday, I went for a drive to my local water-gardening shop for something for the pond. While passing St. Peter's Hospital in Chertsey, I notice a heck of a lot of cyclists (old and young) and think to myself "oh, must be some kind of cycle rally - shame I didn't know about it". Well, as you can imagine, I find myself held up by the cyclists, but I'm happy to sit behind a small group going uphill (so it was a bit of a struggle for some) - I even pull left to let a faster cyclist pass me on my right (I would have given him space on my left, but he'd already started moving out when I noticed him in the mirror). So, I get to the shop at least a minute later than I would have done if I hadn't been held up. Of course I was getting a little worried that the shop might close, after all it was 11:30am and that only left me a few hours to spare! (sorry, my sarcasm hat found its way onto my head this morning). Now while I was browsing in the shop, I hear a voice (didn't see whose it was) say something along these lines: got held up by a load of bloody cyclists. For ****'s sake, they don't even pay road tax! I've been driving at cycle pace since he mentioned some shop I didn't know. I should have ploughed through a few thousand of them! Not being one to start an argument, I let it go. But the more I think about it, the more angry it made me Add to that, the impatience of a driver going the opposite way to me on my journey home (he/she was then stuck behind the cyclists) - nearly running in to me in their desperation to get past. I can appreciate that people will get delayed by a cycle rally, but is it really that bad? I'm sure he wasn't serious about "ploughing through a few thousand", but that sentence makes my blood run cold.
