Last week on TV there was a short video featuring the antics of a cyclist in Lancashire. The programme was supposed to be advocating the benefits of cycling as a means of getting to work. In it the cyclist used what appeared to be a helmet mounted camera and gave a running commentary on his progress. The person in question was styled as an active campaigner for cycling and has contributed in the past to "The Cycle Campaign Network's Campaign for High Standards." One might, therefore, have expected to see a demonstration of the best in cycling proficiency with, perhaps, some comment on the economic, environmental and health benefits of cycling. Instead the program portrayed someone bleating self-righteously about every other road user while throwing in such comments as "whoops it's a bit naughty but I need to go the wrong way down a one-way street here to save time." He also showed the usual disregard for Give Way and STOP markings and for red lights, preferring instead to shout aloud about his love of "sweeping turns downhill" which were achieved by the simple expedient of not looking at oncoming traffic and diving around a curve flat out, ignoring the STOP marking where that curve led onto another road. General standards of cycling portrayed in the video were IMO low with scant regard to traffic law. Is this how cyclists wish to be seen by the general public? Self righteous tits who consider that the law applies only to others? I hope the police use the video as evidence for prosecution as they would in the case of a motorist who recorded himself driving recklessly.
