    I just received this comment on one of my youtube videos.....

    ....what I do believe is cyclists should be banned from using roads at peak hours because all they are doing is causing more congestion on our busy roads and making life difficult for us big boys. I've been watching all the nonsense on the news this week about cyclists wanting more rights on the road and it just makes me even more frustrated than I already am.

    So it would appear that cyclists cause congestion. Mmmm. Are you sure it doesn't have something to do with the hundreds (thousands) of other cars sitting between you and your work.... Hmmmm

    :smile::laugh::biggrin:

    Well, he has a point.

    Every morning I commute in my car 35 miles in the opposite direction to the rush hour and I must see, umm, all of three cyclists hogging the whole of the cycle lane at various points so that all those cars, 4x4's, trucks and buses just can't get past them.
    I mean Sally traffic, on Radio 2, is always banging on about massive tailbacks on the M6 due to a cyclist crossing at junction 19 or the A40 into London is stationary as 2 cyclist are riding into work in convoy.
    :tongue:

    Where's the link?

    I want to point out to him that every morning I join a main road into Birmingham for a 4 mile trip. I always beat the buses on the journey, and often find myself sailing past the same cars.

    If anything, it's the 4-wheelers that hold the bikes up, as well as themselves.
     
  12. Worth remembering cyclists have a right to use the highway but car drivers are only granted a licence under certain conditions.

    Poor, poor Big Boy.
