When cyclists deny reality, politicians should listen to others

It's absolutely frightening.

The following twitter exchanges are all cyclists denying that their speed is a factor in their accidents and injuries.

That they then call me a 'buffoon' for trying to save them from themselves is every reason for politicians to ignore the cycle lobby when it comes to their safety.

There is an increased danger to cyclists with their increase in speed and especially when passing close to stationary traffic too. 

Cyclists must learn that their speed, style and passing distance is a crucial factor in their safety. 

This cycle crash speaks for itself.
