Monday muttering

On cyclists. In particular cyclists who use the road (not the bike path) and refuse to follow the road rules.

Like sailing through red lights.

Like ignoring stop & give-way (yield) signs.

Like overtaking cars driving on the limit and thus are speeding.

I really want to know where (or how) we can start having a constructive conversation about this.

Before you jump on me for having a go at cyclists, don’t worry there will be a Monday muttering coming about motorists as well.

  1. There are some crap cyclists out there who do all those things you mentioned and give the rest of us who don’t a bad name. There are some really shitty car drivers who hate cyclists and seem determined to terrify us off the roads, giving the rest of the motorists a bad name. There are also pedestrians who do some incredibly stupid things.

    It would be good if we could have that conversation, and if people could be a little bit more respectful of other people on the roads, no matter what form of transport they are using.

    1. Yes to all of this! I’m not sure what is the hardest part to get my head around: the lack of respect or the immense sense of entitlement that has crept into the the discussion.
