    @chdot, there is a discussion around this in a separate thread. @jdanielp even read the entire article. See today's rubbish cycling. , @iainmcr has asked for a similar piece about pennyfarthingists. Something along the lines of Red Flag ignoring pennyfarthingists? Must be hard to stop start a pennyfarthingists especially outside leith asda

    As he is clearly a model citizen I'm sure he has had numerous similar chats with motorists. I do find it strange how he has never mentioned them in his column :)

    Since price is mentioned, I wonder what price a parent would pay to have the next part of this call from a school: "Your child has been knocked down..." be "...by a bike" rather than "...by a car"? Probably hard to put a price on. Is the contribution of cyclists to road safety by this measure, priceless?

    At least ‘all cyclists’ won’t get blamed for this one -

    Anas Sarwar, the party’s spokesman for health, was speaking with a journalist from Sky’s Asian channels when two men cycled past, with one shouting ‘P**i b*****d’ as he went.

    The very same Steve Cardownie, after a driver crashes into a pub, nearly killing a load of people:

    Former deputy Lord Provost Steve Cardownie, 65, said: “I was inside having a pint when I heard this huge crash which made me jump out of my seat. I didn’t realise it was that close to the pub. It is a miracle that there was not a tragedy here. That outside area is usually mobbed with people. There was a young family who were about 10 yards further up the road when it happened so they were incredibly lucky.”

    I trust Cardownie will be writing a similar "outraged of Edinburgh" article about speeding BMW drivers?

    I'll wait...

    @neddie presumably he will praise the heroic bike which helped to stop the car.
