I hate cyclists!

They always bitch about motorists and how inconsiderate they are, when cyclists are just as inconsiderate to pedestrians!

The amount of cyclists i see happy to cycle on the pavement, or ignoring road signs/traffic lights, riding without helmets etc. Then they bitch when they get hurt!

We need tougher laws for cyclists!


Id love for you come my lads school,i stopped taking his bike as i cannot get past the cars parked on the pavement.Was asked once by a plastic police ass why i didnt let him ride it after we came out of school..i was not amused as it painfully obvious why...parkin cretins!

I taught myself how to ride in the new forest growing up as a child as that's also where we'd go on holiday back then, and rode ever since, growing up i was always into my BMX as it wasn't all that comfy for long bike rides but for tricks it was always the best, having stunt pegs at the back also for giving friends backies

That was the days though that you'd go out to the local woods and make ruts and jumps to do tricks on your bike, or in my cash the "bomb hole" woods there was already a huge hole in the ground where at the top of the other wide we made a jump all i can say is it was awesome and still there today

And mountain bikes, many more gears much more comfortable and no stunt pegs behind your feet to catch your damn ankle on once in a while which hurt for days, i done my test at little school which gave me a pass to ride safely on the road (keeping too the left) and was taught all the signals etc and use to ride my bike to school each morning and love it, bike rides in general too were awesome spend days sometimes for me out with friends and all we'd do is write our bikes a few miles from the neighborhood then back each day to explore -.- once went a bit too far and didn't get home in time as we just rode so far so we ended up sleeping in some tree's (on the floor, but there was a group of trees in case it rained) then got back the next day good times lol

Nowdays i just ride for fun, don't often ride on the road even know i could i just prefer riding on the pavement although where I'm from there's quite a lot of split pavements one for bikes one for walking, people including me still walk either side as it's just split with a white line and makes little difference just move over when you see someone riding up/down the path and it's a good bike ride the place i go, i also quite often go on bike rides in the morning around a local country park as it has a bike route, walking route(s) and bridle routers for houses, it's sad but even nowdays i do enjoy it -.- i like to get up in the morning and just head one direction till it either gets a bit late or i need to stop, i haven't ever rode far like across the country but quite a long bike ride i done was from where i live in Kent (quite near London) too Broadstairs beach which is a good 70 miles i think from my house.

My random comment over, I quite like riding.

In Ireland we don't pay Road or Car Tax, we pay 'Bankers Bonus' Tax...


Technically, doesn't the EU pay it for you?

In the US almost every kid rides a bike and the training wheels come off around age 4-5 (it's a huge deal to parents when a child reaches this achievement). It's odd how some countries are more into cycling and others not at all. In Amsterdam not having a bike is like not having legs. They ride in sleet and snow without complaints.

Haha! Not anymore, all the EU money went on 'Road Sculptures' and 'Bono' (For those who don't know, 'Bono' is an 80 year old folk singer who hides all his tax in a tax haven outside of Irelland..hence all the pot holes. Yes. Bono is responsible for everthing bad that has happened in Ireland)

Edit: To avoid confusion, 'Bono' isn't a dog chew
Edit: He went to court over a hat
Edit: He smells like wee
Edit: He ate all the pies

As an avid pedestrian, my one problem with some cyclists is when they insist on riding through red lights (especially those on pedestrian crossings).

1) I don't want to you to get/witness you getting hit by a bus.
2) I don't want to get hit by you.

I prefer running to road cycling.
Mountain biking however is great fun!

I live about 30 miles from a fairly well known mountain bike trail (Well it's a selection of trails) called "Brechfa", which is an amazing place to go - unless you get a puncture like I did..

I f'ing hate punctures :/

Cycling will do when there isn't a motor powered alternative. I have two push bikes.

Neat. The first looks like an uncomfortable ride.


Actually they're not meant to be sat on, the seat is just for show as you ride stood up and the gearing is so low it's quicker to walk.
That's why I need two bikes.

Cyclists are like anyone else- you have your good bikers who work with drivers, and you have the bad ones that think "share the road" means claiming it for themselves.

Around where I live, the competitive cyclists are pretty talented at sticking to rural areas, where they can be passed easily. In the city, it's another matter. We have a lot of students (pedestrians and bikers alike) who head straight into traffic, ride smack in the middle of the road when they don't need to, cross on red lights, etc. I admire your efficient way of getting from point A to point B, but don't hold me up while you're at it.

In the end, I think drivers tend to hate cyclists just because we're more inclined to notice the bad ones. The good ones who aren't splashed across our windshields just aren't appreciated as much.

I bought a nice Scott Sub 20, a couple of months back, an absolute beaut of a bike

Was going to be riding the John O' Groats to lands end for charity but simply haven't had enough practice to do it in the summer so we are now doing Coast to coast instead

Where abouts are you from?

I know someone who bought the Sub 20 (2012) and it is a very, very nice bike. Although it's designed for commuting he's been getting taking on the trails too.

I live in the states, east coast at the moment.

Yeah mines 2012, the 2013 are literally just a difference in colour and a extra 100...

Aye I don't see it as a commuting bike, perfect for long distance, and I've put done grippier tyres on to take it on trails but I didn't expect the tyres to add so much weight to it which is a shame :/

I think so, they are professional quality frames and super durable. There are decent and much more affordable bikes out there too but, a Scott frame can survive a nuclear attack.

First ride of the season - what took me about and hour and a half in late October took me almost three.

I think I have bruised myself.

In most of the country I had like 6 bikes, down to 4 now. But not living there now.. I always took the bicycle to work, snow or rain or ice, didn't matter.

They have customized seats that have holes for your junk. You probably have to create a mold of some sort prior to them making your seat but...

IDK maybe some men wear spandex to help tuck their stuff in.
