I have some sympathy with this, but surely (and here I speak as a motorcyclist) it is poor practice to ride that close to parked cars?

This is absolutely true. But you also get shouted at for riding in the 'middle of the road' when you don't.

By law we are obliged to occupy the centre of the road, here. It’s not the shouting I mind, it’s when they deliberately pass you about 20 cm away to make a point (or out of ignorance, it’s scary either way).

Pure (and inaccurate) inference. I carefully never made any such assertion.

Maybe. But I am sure that you (rightly) ignore any louts who shout at you.

Some bike on bike action today. Stopped on a narrow road to allow and older lady cyclist plenty of room to pass, coming towards me. As she maneuvered through the gap, Lycra man came roaring down from behind me and missed her by a whisker. Selfish C*nt. And his arse really was too vast for the Lycra.

So cyclists start getting the full power of the law coming down on them for their arrogant and dangerous antics, antic they have been performing with impunity for years, and the usual suspects are now bleating about it being unfair. Hilarious.

Could you, just once, provide some facts or evidence to back up your assertions, rather than just lay your prejudices out for everyone to see?

That video footage is shocking. 20 months for scum like that is far too lenient.

Crossing the road on Tooley Street outside London Bridge station the lights had been red for a good five seconds yet still some (three) wankers (one of them female too) insisted on cycling through the pedestrians at speed because they couldn't be bothered to slow down. I only managed to hurl abuse at them. One day i will put a stick in their spokes. As a cyclist and driver i really hate idiots who have no consideration for other road users.
