'I cycle on the road as if every driver is trying to hit me'
That doesn't make sense. In that case why do it at all if it's that bad? It's a fair logical question.
Dare I say that the collision isn't obviously deliberate but the actions after tend to support that conclusion. But even those could be those of a totally confused and bewildered frightened driver from the get go.
But wasn't this piece written by a cyclist? If so it can hardly be balanced rational reporting can it?
On the basis of this evidence, the police seem to be jumping to conclusions.
Millions of times a day, drivers are safely passing cyclists without incident and I am sure if there was mass attempted murder and murder by car going on the Telegraph would've been leading with all that now. But why foment a cycle war DT?
You are encouraging exposed humans of all ages, on two flimsy wheels and a slender frame, to mix and mingle and often obstruct and compete with, large essential machinery on the move and which is operated by complete strangers of varying ability and mental capability. Now can anyone deny that is what road cycling is? If it were invented now in 2014 it would be considered as a mad idea.
See these instances DT and then tell us you encourage all this. http://
