    Brilliant. Fortunately it’s not illegal here either – or I’d be ticketed every day for not using the bike lane when I’m overtaking those heavy slow Boris bikes…

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the CTC recently campaign against the introduction of a similar rule that was on the cards here in the UK?

      Ever so often helmet talks etc are raised again and campaigners have to rise up to quash them. Wouldn’t be too surprised if this was one person’s uneducated suggestion!

    Bike lanes – prabably the most dangerous part of the street…………………….the whole world over.
    Black Cabs – certainly the most arrogant and propriatorial drivers in the world.

    There is a war on cyclists going on in NYC lately by the police. This is not an isolated case. The Mayor should intervene as he has been a big proponent of encouraging cycling. The cases I have heard about are truly outrageous.

    V good – particularly the scene where he slings himself into the back of the lorry. Gotta hurt surely.

    Luckily things havent got to this stage in the UK .. just stay away from the Olympic VIP lanes!

    UNTIL more Police Officers get back on the beat in Uniform or plain clothes , the motoring Public will treat “cyclists” as obstructions !

    Just finished with the Tour de Suisse where i was told by the head of the “Wurth Sponsors Organisation” that cyclists “were a bloody nuisance by interfering with their passage on the route of the TDS whilst they were working to give their clients a “good time” demonstrates that even those employed in the Cycling Industry do not think about “Cyclists’ Safety”!

    Signalling overtaking by Swiss drivers in general is 90% but by those with Sponsor decals is closer to 10% !

    Who will buy a “Focus bike product” when those working for them can’t be bothered to promote Cycle Safety when they pass a cyclist by signalling ?

    ALL TOUR employees should be working at showing the public how easy it is to behave in a courteous manner than as they do currently which is driving in a manner unacceptable to the rest of the community !
