Default Cyclists and joggers

Why are some cyclists and joggers such assholes? Why do some cyclists need to cycle at top speed where people are walking? And the same for joggers. Why do some joggers need to rush up behind people and expect them to disappear or throw themselves into a ravine, just so these idiots can pass? And the worst is when some cyclists ride two abreast, or worse, in a pack. Are they birds? Do they need to flock?

BTW what are the rules for cyclists? Are they allowed to ride on pavements? Are they allowed to ride two abreast?

Cyclists are not aloud to ride on the pavements unless there is a marked cycle lane on part of the pavement and then they should only be riding within that lane. Maybe the thing to do is to pretend you are filming them as they come towards you if you have a camera phone, but I don't know if that might create conflict with some people. You are probably quite within your rights to do that though as they are breaking the law by riding on the pavement.

The thing is though the roads can be really dangerous for bicycles in towns and cities (and even in the countryside with idiot drivers who are not taking into consideration that there might be cyclists on the roads).

Peace, love, harmony and wisdom friend

I always fear the insanity of people. Many people are quite aggressive if they are questioned, criticised or disagreed with by a stranger (me/us).


They're so aggravating!! Even when we go for a peaceful country walk, they ride along at a stupidly fast pace...I mean it's not a proper path or anything, but they come along there too. Or it's the infernal joggers, huffing and puffing like heavy smokers, expecting everyone to get out of their way ASAP. I understand the idea of being in a rush when people are driving/cycling to work, or even on the escalators on the underground. You get the fast ones who pass on the right, whilst all us slow people stand on the left. But when it's not a rush hour, or even a real road, why do these horrors have to be there!!


We've had a few occasions when there've been about five cyclists clustered into a group, riding on a road. A long line of traffic behind them, as they leisurely cruise along in a pack formation. Incredible!! Is that allowed?


And don't get me started on those motorbikers who just about give you a heart attack with their crazy behaviour. I've seen an online discussion where one of them was saying something about keeping a sparkplug specifically to hurl at any driver's car if they are annoyed.

allowed? What?
I was born free on this planet we call home, I will walk, jog or cycle where ever I please and no one will tell me otherwise.
I do try my best not to bother others while they go about their daily business, but I'll never bow down to anyone's rules.

You can cycle on some footpaths here in England.
I ride a bike now and again for fun but also drive.
Seen some inconsiderate cyclists around towns but it's six of one and half a dozen of the other because there are some inconsiderate motorists about as well.
Just this week one plank almost had me off my bike overtaking far too close then cutting right in front of me.
Street Joggers we don't get to see much of round these parts, people tend to run on the beach mainly and those are no problem cos it's a wide beach.

If cyclists dirgegard motoring laws by cycling through red traffic lights, they can expect to be knocked off and injured or run over and killed.

I drove into town last year following a cyclist who only stayed ahead of me by repeatedly cycling through red lights. But cyclists ignoring red lights is common here.

I see London is going to ban certain trucks to help save lives of cyclsist and pedestrians.

As a lifetime biker on cycles and motorcycles I can tell you that no matter how visible you make cyclsists and bikers it makes no difference to safety when the drivers do not look. Not looking is the issue.

But ramblers !!!! They are a major menace !!!
I hate ramblers on the road who are just like a flock of sheep being moved from one field to another. Except sheep arent a self-righeous bunch of ignorant arseholes.

Come round a bend and there the bastards are.... all over the road !!!

I haven't seen people on the roads in the way you describe Busa..... I've seen a few people with their dumb phones jaywalking. What ramblers are walking in city and suburban roads? Those would be pedestrians, not ramblers surely!

Yes I was talking about country roads.

Oh yes I've seen dozey ramblers and walkers gathering to plot their path or something? I don't know. Had a load of them stop outside our house once....not ideal. But they're usually on quiet roads...I haven't seen them on the busier roads, like an A-road for instance.

You must live some scenic places for them to be plaguing you Busa!

I don't know if it's aloud or not. Sometimes you get two people on bicycles side by side on country roads and although one is trying to protect the other, they are a right pain in the arse.

Peace, love, harmony and wisdom friend

Not plaguing but just annoying when you do come across them

Our community where I lived a few years ago had a particular crime and public safety problem which needed to be fixed and everyone (local council, police etc) was agreed on what would be done until the ramblers association stuck their stuck up noses in an blocked the change from happening for no good reason other than they could. So I dont like them for that reason as well.

We get the 'cavalry' coming through our hamlet during the summer.
Horse riding holidaymakers going down onto the beach for a canter.
We're never short of some horse muck for the compost heap.
It's a quiet road so they don't cause any problems.
Two abreast cycling is legal in Britain, bit risky on some of the faster roads though.

Yeah I understand fully why cyclists ride out in the road or two abreast to make sure other road users make allowances for them.
But if they get wiped out by a van or a truck its a big risk and a hell of a price for their families and friends to pay for a small point of principle.

If I ruled the world all public transport would be free, and all cars and trucks would be banned from towns and cities.. lets make push bikes work for us and make life better.

Every town could have a huge drop point for trucks to drop the town's goods, and push bikes with trailers take them to the final destination. Or even start up the river barges again.


We have lots of cycle clubs here I do understand why they ride in bunches is meant to be safer.. but at the same time many people get peed off and over take the bunch putting oncoming traffic at risk.. I come round the country bend the other day just as a truck was overtaking a bunch of cyclist.. not funny!

How would a plumber or a sparky be able to do any repairs in the towns & cities - carry all their tools on a pushbike?

Can I fit my triple extension ladder on there too? Sorry Kizzie, while banning all vehicles may seem like it's a good idea it really won't work. What about the fire brigade, ambulances, doctors etc? How are the disabled, sick & elderly going to get about without proper transport?
