Re: Motorcycles using cycle designated parking

I remember trying to warn a motorcyclist with a very nice bike it might not be advisable to park his motorbike locked to the Huntingdon Sainsburys cycle parking area, mostly cos people would be more likely to scratch his bike. He seemed to take it as a threat from me! It's tricky with motorbikes, yo...

Re: Appeal For Cyclist Attacked On Camera

Does anyone here react violently, whilst cycling, to grumpy pedestrians who swear, right or wrong? Do hop off and smack them, aim your bike at them? Why is it almost excused if you are in a car? We'd all be on a pedestrians side who pointed out that you shouldn't be cycling on the footpath, and you'...

Re: Fed up getting abuse from other roas users

I think it would do wonders for car/cycle/lorry relations if they brought back those old info films that they used to have, you know, green cross code, get yourself seen, belt up. But with the newer cycling information, so motorists don't take cycling further out as a personal insult/arrogant cyclis...

Found: Cycle accessories in St.Ives Cambs.

If anyone has mislaid an important bit of equipment, I found it in the town centre near the bike racks this evening. If you lost it you'll know what it is. :)
Pm me.

Re: What's the oddest thing you've seen out cycling?

Twice I've come across guys with two barrel shot guns, not broken but ready to go, one on cycle network 51, one on a country road. You hope they are just a blood thirsty farmer.

Re: Do you drive as well as cycle?

Yes, well, motorcycle. But I do love dumping all drivers into a "you lot" category in a cycle/roads/car discussion. When someone asks me what I mean by it I say, "you known, your lot, all you mobile phone driving, disabled cash point parking, speeding, boy racer, pavement parking, amb...

Re: Bus Driver Road Rage

Trouble is, the cyclist does come over as a bit of a militant wally. Is it the case of have camera will find trouble to record? Not excusing the ignorance of the driver and his stooge but the cyclist just inflames the situation and who carries a copy of the HC unless he's looking for aggro? I thoug...

Re: Hit by cabbie - RESOLVED

Some years ago I got in the way of some numpty (whilst in my car) and when I stopped at the lights he jumped out, opened my (unlocked) door, punched me in the face and drove off before I'd even started to figure out what had happened. Fortunately I got his reg plate and called at the local nick to ...

Re: Cambridge-St.Ives Guided Busway/cycle path

This site sometimes has good updates on the state of the path/buses. http://travellingtheguidedbusway.blogspot.co.uk/ We cycled it on boxing day, so you could walk up by the rails and have no fear of being smacked by bus mirrors or what not. That's the highest I've seen it, almost up to the rails, a...

Re: Taxi driver stalks cyclist

Apparently the taxi driver was given a harassment order by the police and it looks like he might loose his taxi licence from the council.
Taxi driver lied to the police about the cyclist making rude gestures, the cyclists video backed up that he hadn't.
So, he could have been in bigger trouble.
