Re: Surely ...
Well typed Dwarf!
Living and working in the Surrey Hills, as one does, means cyclists are everywhere now, especially at the weekends.
A road, B road, single lane with passing spaces - all are blocked by cyclists who shouty-shout their way around and are mortified when you point out that Pelotons are pointless and illegal unless racing.
Frankly I blame Boris for all of it. Mind you I blame Boris for most things at the moment.
Get everyone home-working, and walking everywhere. Get the cycles off the pavements.
Tax the cyclists using Oyster cards and use the money to get the cycle lanes working properly again.
I know it's not really practical and everyone would ignore it anyway, but I will feel better as a result.
And, no, I can't ride a bike so am totally biased. And cross. Clearly.
