    cyclist vs pedestrian - who has right of way 9th May 17 at 8:53 PM
    we out for a lovely scenic walk along the riverside. Path designated for both users, but tbh, at times it feels like the people who are walking are target practice for those on 2 wheels.

    If only the cyclists would treat the pedestrians with the same care they expect from others. In fact to would be better if we had different paths.
    Rant over!!!

    How best to solve this problem? other than poking them with a big stick.

    In fact, my experience is that if you follow all the rules of the road, it makes very little difference to Mr Angry (or Mrs Nasty); they just don't want you there full stop.

    MAMILS on the other hand, can't stand them and give them as little space as possible. A bunch of self entitled middle management types who take their work attitude onto the road. It's a pose as far as they're concerned, they're the hipsters of the road!

    I've often thought that the BMW driver became an AUDI driver, and now he's ditched the car for a £2000 racing bike and all the gear.

    Like I said, it's all just a pose... When the next fad comes along there's gonna be alot of old £2000 bikes going begging, hopefully cyclists who genuinely need two wheeled transport will be able to get a cheeky upgrade!

    Don't harass a hippie. You'll get bad karma.
