    More arrogant and selfish cycling here, watch from 2 minutes:-


    Reminds me of when I had the temerity to indicate right and stop in the centre of the road waiting for a single car on the other carriageway to pass before making the manoeuvre, and was subject to a tirade of abuse by the car that had to wait behind me (who was some half a mile back at the start of the manoeuvre). I do think there is something to be said for some mandatory cycling for drivers.

      Nice precedent to be set against cyclists that think they can do what they want
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      Sorry, my point was that cycling two abreast is in the Highway Code and is generally safer. Having said that I don't know the specific road you're talking about and it may not be the case in that instance.
      The road in question is:-

      0.447 miles in length.
      It would take 1:37 minutes to cycle the entirety at 16.56mph.
      It would take 40 seconds to drive it at 40 mph.

      But, there's the bridge, which makes that section of the road almost impassable.
      So without the bridge section the road is:-

      0.318 miles in length.
      1.06 minutes by bike at 16.56mph
      28 seconds by car at 40 mph

      But there's a right turn straight after the bridge with all the necessary road furniture
      So without the bridge or traffic island the road is:-

      0.288 miles long
      0.59 seconds by bike at 16.56 mph
      0.24 seconds by car at 40 mph.


      You can now see why @Easy 10 is justified in calling other human beings vermin because of the choice of sunglasses.

      Crazy judgement. All road users should show consideration but that applies to pedestrians not looking where they are walking as well as cyclists

      Oh do give it a rest, you relentless holier-than-thou prig. If a post on here eats away at you to this extent, then perhaps do us both a favour and do a Harry Wilsons Tackle eh.

      I am completely in agreement with you that the cyclist should have done what is perceived to be the right thing (whether it is or not)

      I just don't agree that the potential 35 seconds in question warrants such a tirade, esp not from a poster who comes over as considerably more intelligent than most.

      I'm assuming you'd want some mandatory horse riding lessons for cyclists and drivers too then?

      To enforce cyclists to use the cycle lanes by law they would have to be legally safe to use...hahahahahaha good luck waiting for that to happen when its the place all the drains, manhole covers, water and gas access points are placed randomly to make your journey more eventful. They would also have to keep it clear of all the debris and crap thrown into it by cars/trucks.
      and also make country numpties like me more aware of them (Was called a see you next tuesday by a cyclist when I wandered into the cycle lane at Hove Lagoon, oblivious to its existence!)
      Pretentious,moi?
