I was cycling home last night, enjoying the sunshine and minding my own business on Broad Street in Birmingham when just in front of me a 4X4 blasted his horn at a cyclist who was in the middle of the lane. There were actually two cyclists, one was over to the left and one in the middle. I saw the 4X4 beep him and then drive a bit (not really really) close to him and the cyclist pulled over a bit. As usual about 20 feet up the road the 4X4 had to join the queue up ahead and I went past him about 25 seconds after the "incident". I (stupidly) muttered my usual "you didn't get very far did you" more to myself than anything but unfortunately for me his windows were open and he had no stereo or anything on so he heard every word! He said if the cyclist wanted to get killed that was up to him. I replied that it was hard to see what the cyclist had actually done wrong to me and that actually the 4X4 had only got a few feet up the road before he had had to join another queue. The 4X4 driver answered that there were two lanes, one for him and one for the cyclist and that he (the cyclist) should keep to his lane. I pointed out again that the 4X4 wasn't actually getting anywhere fast though to which I got a load of "it's not your problem" "keep out of it" etc etc. I was really polite the whole time and he was getting more than a bit arsey so I just left it at that and cycled on (even though he (maturely) shouted after me - "yeah go on off you go") The "interesting" thing about the conversation was that this was on Broad Street in Birmingham and there are not "two lanes" at all - there is one lane all the way up Broad Street and it is not even a really really wide lane or anything on that side (out of town). I was surprised that he thought there was "one lane for him and one lane for me" at one point he even said to me that it was "the rules of the road". .... although why I am shocked I'm not sure!!! Just thought I would share this with you as you are the only people who might be remotely interested!
