came to work in the car today (front lights BOTH gone on the bike, i've got a cold, and i'm getting some logs for the fire while i'm here). anyway, bemoaning the lack of my daily constitutional to a colleague, i get a load of all-cyclists-are-uninsured-rljers bollocks. and despite explaining that cars need to be insured because of the scale of damage they can do (and that many cyclists are covered by personal liability cover anyway) thay had none of it. no road tax mentioned though, i was hoping to give a full demolition of that argument, but sadly it was not forthcoming. ! why is it that motorists tar us all with the same brush (apparently he had a cyclist rlj on his way in)? how about: all motorists are 4x4 driving chavs with basball caps driving at 25mph whilst on their mobile phones? makes about as much sense doesn't it?
