Motorists – Cyclists – PedestriansShareThis
Cyclists complain about motorists (and vice versa). But pedestrians complain about cyclists. Sometimes with good reason!
Was cycling to meet someone yesterday and the light went red and a whole crowd of people, maybe 20, started crossing the road from both sides. Suddenly another cyclist went a full speed straight through the middle of them almost hitting this old lady. I then saw him go through a red light without looking and almost get hit by a car coming from the left.
The strangest thing was he was so unaware of his surroundings that he didn’t realise any of this and seemed to be oblivious to the chaos he was causing.
It’s behaviour like this that leads to pressure to stop shared usage of areas like on the South Bank as reported in the Evening Standard yesterday.
So if you see someone cycling like an idiot, have a gentle word before they hurt themselves or someone else.
