That’s enough now

WILL Paul Hepworth please give it a rest writing about cyclists.

I am 75 and had bikes for a number of years I even worked at at Claude Butler Cycles when I was 17. I passed my test on motorcycles at 17 and have driven motorbikes and sidecars, but have been driving cars since the late 1960s.

There are bad cyclists, also motorcyclists, also quite a few car drivers, but we are all on the road together and just have to be alert and keep our eyes open.

Mr W Poole, Falcon Close, York.

"....There are bad cyclists, also motorcyclists, also quite a few car drivers, but we are all on the road together and just have to be alert and keep our eyes open."

Mr Poole eloquently makes the point that I have repeatedly preached in these columns. He could have added that there are a few silly pedestrians about as well.

I already follow his advice by remaining alert when on my bike. Keeping my eyes and ears open, AND looking over my shoulder when appropriate, helps me to assess potential danger to myself and respond to it.

That response may be a measured respositioning from secondary to primary position, to deter a dangerous overtake by one of our few bad road users.

But I usually both give and receive courtesy when using the roads.

I don't think it is your road sense that he is refering to Paul.... it is the way that you turn every subject on the forum into a cycling reference.

I think what Mr Poole might be trying to say a little more politely is that you are a self interested, blathering, pompous, cyclist alienating, out of touch windbag

Without doubt, the most odious man I have thankfully never met. Single handedly, and blindly doing more to alienate the Cyclists of York in his quest to massage his own egotistical tendency. He is the most nauseating poster on here, a detestable character, and if he really wanted to improve the imagine of Cyclists should refrain from contributing on any subject if he can't leave cycling out of it. A real to** pot!
