my side of the road

I've walked instead of driven a couple of kilometres these past few mornings and I've been appalled at my treatment by cyclists.

No, this is not a motorist having a go at cyclists. This is a part-time pedestrian talking. They buzzed by us, we had to get out of their way, they cut across us. Not all of them, of course. Some were considerate and mannerly. But there were a right few who cycled like they owned the footpath, cycle lane and road.

Pity they don't have registration numbers like motorists. That way they might be brought to account. To the mannerly ones I say: continue to lead by example.
