It amazes me when I read the pro-cycling group get off in the local papers like the Canberra Times and say that cycling is a healthy life style choice that everyone should be doing and blame motorists for all the ills of the world.
Well I have two things to say to you: “Stuff the lot of you”
In recent days I have seen a cyclists ride his bike the opposite direction in the transit lane/bus lane on Adelaide Avenue, when on the there is a very adequate bike lane built for untold millions just 2 car lane to his right (Is it legal to ride against traffic in a bike lane?)
Then yesterday there was a recumbent cyclists riding his bike on Commonwealth Avenue, in a car lane. No whip flag, no reflective clothing. Do you guys know that these layed back bike riders are usually below car window height? Can you imagine the accident waiting to happen as a car changing lanes may not see these dickheads until too late?
