    Fair cop, but what an appallingly biased, ill informed report!

    As for asking the ABD for a quote on cycling?

    He also needs to be taught how to put his feet on the pedals.

    And he needs pannier bags and a rucksack. No excuse at all for that car he has following him about.

    I've heard this is not true, and it's not him because you can only see the back of his head.

    Hypocrisy

    Saturday in the Daily Mail:
    Hugh Bladon, of the Association of British Drivers, said: 'All cyclists must obey the rules of the road. It does not matter who they are.'

    Today in the Daily MAil when asked about enforcing parking restrictions the same spokesman declared:

    "Its a Jihad against freedom of movement"

    Come on.....

    You can't have it both ways!

    Enforcement should NOT be selective.
