    Cycled from Gilmerton to the old town and back today, and lost my "days without loudly breaking rule 2 in the middle of the street" streak.

    First to the driver who turned left into the Morrison's on Gilmerton Road without even indicating. Luckily my cyclist sixth sense was turned on and I saw it coming early enough to stop.

    Then a bus driver overtook with inches of space, coming south past Surgeon's Hall. Not at all helped by the advisory cycle lane, which they no doubt thought meant they were driving safely and legally.

    The driver who came careering round a blind corner, while performing a right turn through a red light on a pedestrian crossing, directly into oncoming cyclists on a LIVE CYCLEWAY WHICH HAS NO ROAD. All so he could park antisocially right outside the Meadows playpark / tennis pavilion and be 2 steps closer to his destination.

    Really had to bite my tongue on that one, as had the family in tow.

    Is there nothing that motorists won’t ruin?

    A mate witnessed this incident so I have heard some further details but as I'm not a witness myself I won't repeat them here. There is apparently more on Facebook, somewhere.

    Thankfully no injuries.

    Suffice to say weapons-grade idiocy was a feature.

    The thing about cocaine is that it makes you think you can drive
