    Was reading today that the police and youtube are cracking down on boy racers putting their vids on.

    I guess they will have to do the same to cyclists next.

    Then we will just be left with 14 year old girls having arguments with themselves using glove puppets.

    Gotta say tho, seeing them Couriers ripping London roads I know so well makes the NYC one look quite tame by comparison.
    Oh to be young and fearless once more........

  8. Call me a humourless old bastard, but I can't say I approve. Let's face it, if it was "Taxi Racing" and it demonstrated a similar disregard for the rules of the road, we'd all be up in arms about it. To be honest, it's no wonder everyone hates us.

    And it has to be said a damn sight more people, taxi drivers included, drive in an equally dangerous disreagarding manner in central London, everyday. These cyclists gave as good as they have been given in a one off blat. Not big and not clever I admit, but great fun to watch and dream......

    Next time that the Subaru brigade run through town, I hope it's you that they give respect to rather than me.

    I don't the subaru brigade can do that in central london traffic

    and people race cars all the time, only at night when the roads are clear, I suppose some people think that's cool too, fair enough

    I think the courier race is cool because it's so physical, it doesn;t compare to subarus, and if you let me know how many people the couriers injure on their annual (or whatever) race we can reconsider

    think what you want, this thread has been done umpteen times, everyone knows what they think

    them?

    respect the riding, does it stop being daring and skilful just because you don't approve?

    I've got mixed feelings about that vid.
    Part of me is envious thinking I wish i was as skillful, daring and free-spirited as that. The other part of me thinks 'twats, ploughing into peds, RLJing, give us all a bad name etc.

    hopefully just a stunt for the cameras. doubt they do that day in day out.
