    My response to a fake letter in our local newspaper.


    On 9 JUN 04, you published a letter with the following content.

    "Now that the police are dealing with the motorists that break the speed
    limit, are they going to uphold the law regarding the cyclists that don't
    have lights on during darkness?

    That pedal on the pavement? That ride through red traffic lights?

    If the law is upheld for motorists it should be likewise for cyclists.

    S Mason,
    Bloomfield Road,
    Wold Road, Hull."

    This letter was a fake. The person pretending to be me was using my old
    address (actually Bloomfield Avenue) from over 4 years ago. No such person
    as S Mason lives there.

    Since I usually write about pro cycling matters, the phony writer is
    obviously trying to hijack my name in an attempt to prove a point. I would
    like to put the record straight if I may.

    Thanks.

    Simon Mason

    An anti-cyclist out to wind you up probably. Bloomin' sauce!

    You could have mentioned that you do actually agree about enforcement of
    cycling law, but I guess it's not the issue. Some people really are
    pathetic, though. How cowardly is it to try to discredit you with this
    illiterate crap?
