thread As a mostly-pedestrian, driver every fortnight, occasional cyclist...
I hate all users of road and pavement.

Adults cycling on busy pavements are a particular annoyance though... together with drivers who don’t think that the various basic provisions of the Highway Code apply to them personally.

A lot of pedestrians are stupid cunts as well, of course.

Fucking people. Load of shits.
permalink This.
Very much this.
permalink My desk overlooks Old Street Roundabout,
and I see cuntish mishaps every day. Today, it was the jerk in the Merc, who tried to cut in front of a bus, but ended up scraping his own back left wing off the front of the bus. Yes, there was laughter.
permalink Hateful thing, that roundabout.
Last week's cyclist v cement mixer incident freaked me out a bit.
permalink Yeah,
one of our lot saw it happen. I had been looking out the window moments before.
permalink There's a scheme for Old Street rbt
That was pretty much funded and approved... Got "paused" by Khan/Will "useless" Norman in May 2016. Mainly because it was a Johnson/Gilligan scheme (still seems weird that the actually good cycleways in London were put in place by Andrew fucking Gilligan.)
permalink Paths make up the majority of official bike lanes here
It's a pain in the arse, because you officially are supposed to get off and walk your bike across every crossing. Unofficially you do anyway, unless you are on a mountain bike that can take the hammering of jumping on/off kerbs or down/up stupidly steep ramps.
In some places it's just easier to ride on the road so you don't waste so much energy getting up to speed all the time.
It's over 30C almost every day here, so its not like anyone really uses the paths to walk on anyway.
