    Great news!

    Had the wits scared out of me on Russell Rd yesterday by a BMW SUV driver absolutely gunning it down the middle of the road under the tram/rail bridge. All while overtaking 3 cyclists, with another 3 coming in the oppsite direction. So dangerous, given bikes often wait in the centre at the bend.

    And this only a few days after a Tesla SUV did exactly the same thing (in a slightly quieter fashion, but there was still a whoosh and roar of tyres)

    So sick of this.

    It's a 20mph speed limit so that simply cannot be

    Bloody cyclists always riding in the middle of the road! ;-)

    But, being serious…

    Does the ‘lead-in’ arrangements for the new route reduce the ability of idiots to be dangerous??
