Bristol's mental, I've nearly been hit a few times now and seen some people less fortunate than me, one guy was jogging on the pavement, he was hit and hurt on the floor but the cyclist carried on while shouting abuse at the poor guy.

edit: cannot upload my own photos! Here is a google image. They are the black rubber grippy things that cover the gear shifter / brake arrangement.

Yep, one guy came flying round the corner and nearly hit me, he was on the pedestrian side even though half the pavement was made for cyclists, he did apologise though.

The latest one was last week, I was waiting to cross a busy one way two lane at the pedestrian crossing, kept looking left to see a break in the traffic then the lights turned red so I started crossing,
Didn't see the twat bastard cyclist coming from my right on the road going in the wrong direction, I just managed to jump back onto the pavement in time, quick changing lights so had to wait for the lights to change again.
And why don't cyclists dismount at pedestrian crossings, it's fekin annoying as they come towards you.

Nope think this is a great idea and all bike owners should have them so the ****ers can be brought under control and have to comply with the rules as other road users do but the punishment should be gassing like badgers

Thanks for the notice. I’ll be there to meet the ferry with my uzi.

Tbf there are brilliant proper cycle tracks all over the IOW but the buggers still insist on using the road, even when one is 50 meters parallel. Yes it already on the “things that make you angry” thread
