Reading though the Sunday paper today I came across this (please read the whole thing before commenting), once I had read it all the way though, I saw that she has a point. There is a very real problem with the attitudes to pedestrians of some cyclist, they behave just as if they where driving cars, everyone else is expected to get out of their way. Sadly Ms Blythman suggest no solutions to this problem, but maybe, we as cyclist should. OK so part of the problem is over crowding due to the fact that our roads are often less than cycle friendly and people feeling forced to use off-road routes. However, there is also the issue of cycling be seen as primarily as a sport, so speed become more important, and this leads to rude and aggressive behaviour. How do we solve this problem? Make the roads more cycle friendly to relieve pressure on the off roads routes? Less aggressive and more friendly Dutch style bikes? Better education and training?
