Sorry Tim but I find your attitude astonishing, I work in London every day and see the mindless work of cyclists at play, running red lights, riding on the pavements (we are talking big wide roads), the pure absent mindedness of it strikes me dumb sometimes. I don't feel sorry for anyone being injured for doing something they shouldn't, be it a rider running a redlight and either getting knocked down by a pedestrian or another vehicle, I cheer when I see a policeman actually stop these guys and issuing them with fines for doing it. Now back to the OP's post, there is riding along a pavement at a nice sedentary speed (where by you're able to stop in plenty of time avoiding any accidents\injuries) and there is pelting along that pavement for no apparent reason. There was (in my mind) no reason for that guy to be going at that speed on the pavement other than pure selfishness. I long for the day when cyclists also have to pay a road tax, regularly get stopped for doing the illegal riding that they do now (for heavens sake, we would be strung up if we drove on the pavement, run red lights all the time, had near misses etc) but cyclists generally get away with it because why???? Now I should point out why I feel so strongly about cyclists, I am a former motorcyclist, HGV driver and Cambridge resident (as in former every one of those), cyclists wind me up for everyone of those reasons (as a motorcyclist I will be away from those lights well before any car... but having a pedal cycle go thru a red light can ruin everyones day). As a former HGV driver I like to think I have a lot of foresight, but again with a cyclist you can never tell, one minute he is on the pavement, the next the road, it makes life bloody hard and as for Cambridge, god help you if as a driver you have an accident involving a cyclist, that place is a cycle haven, more rights for the cyclist, more routes etc. As far as cyclists go I am all for the law abiding careful cyclist, god help the one who isn't and causes me to have an accident, injures me or my family (and yes, I do shout at them and abuse them when the swerve right infront\behind me when I am crossing the road when the lights are red and the crossing is green, who the hell do they think they are??). I make no apologies for this view.
