That guy give cyclists there rep.

He undertakes when unnecesary and pulls in too quick.

A good chuckly when he falls off non the less.

My thoughts exactly. I couldn't help laughing when his aggressiveness ended up with him on the ground whilst being filmed. Just thought you deserved that. God help the pedestrian but hey gave me a laugh anyway.

The traffic is awful round Belfast and some drivers point themselves towards the kerbs to stop cyclists coming down the inside especially if they have just overtaken you to stop in front of you. If the traffic is really backed up and some bugger has done this I just get off the bike move on to the path, walk round him/her. Turn round and smile at him/her as I slip down the inside of the rest of the traffic. Gives me so much pleasure and no doubt pisses them off immensely.

I guess it depends on whether you consider that the reporter is cycling aggressively or not. If you do then you may feel he has got his just desserts and made a complete idiot of himself. Trying to highlight the problems that cyclists face with poor driving and narrow lanes in highly conjested roads is laudable however when your respond to that by cycling in a manner which could itself be considered dangerous doesn't do much justice to the point you are trying to make.

I'd need to watch it in real life instead of through a camera.

Cheers.
Point taken however considering this was being filmed for reporting through a camera I guess the appropriate medium is the camera through which to view it ;)
