This is pure horrifying. The idiots do not realize that the need to let the cyclist go on ahead.
Always stay away from cyclists, fucking idiots 4 abreast and all over the road and 50mph in lycra , nightmare around Surrey since the Olympics.
Yes like a twatUm. Did you see the way the front biker was riding?
Oh I have plenty to say about cyclists, but that's not really what I learned from the video. Of course he could have done what we tell ourselves to do when we see a dickhead motorist ahead - hang back, keep out of the way. But how many of us prefer to get in front of, and as far from the up-coming accident as possible .... then tell others they should mellow..to be fair cyclists who overtake other vehicles at speed downhill (when the other vehicles are slowing for things like bends and other traffic) are d*cks...
I think DELuth works for the United Nations :thumbup
Respect for balancing the argument - I take my hat off to you Sir :respekt
Words of a sage indeed ! - My son is going through the same and he thinks I'm a crap driver because I get too het up about other drivers ! He's probably right ! Hopefully though I can pass on some wise words!I'm currently teaching my oldest to drive and one of my lessons is ALL drivers are idiots and ALL of them are trying to kill you if you let them. Hyperbole, I know, but I will gladly throw everyone under the bus if it keeps her safe!
Plenty of disturbing bicycle hate in here. I guess I will address it. Disclaimer: I don't own a bicycle, spandex makes me puke, and have never worn a helmet while pedaling a bike.
Lots of bicyclists ride like dicks, lots of motorcyclists ride like dicks, lots of motorists drive like dicks, lots of lorries drive like dicks, lots of pedestrians cross the street like dicks, etc. etc. You have to face it, dickheads come in all shapes and sizes.
Lumping all of a certain group together because a few of their ilk have pissed you off in the past is nonsensical. All people are different. Think about it. How many times has a motorcyclist pissed you off? How many videos of motorcyclists being utter twats have you seen? Do you now hate all motorcyclists? Of course not. We accept the fact that even though there are a lot of them, they don't represent all motorcyclists by any means. There are plenty of responsible bicyclists that follow the rules and are considerate of others and plenty of jackasses that don't do either of those things. Point is, treat each one as an individual and judge them based on their own actions, not the actions of others. The ones that are being dicks? Flame the hell out of them, call them out for their bullshit, just don't take it out on the next guy.
Share the road! We all pay for it and have to use it together.
Sorry for getting all preachy.
*end of rant*
I disagree with you !!!!! That's NOT Hyperbole that's FACT. Especially, and including, those that are not out to run you down but just don't even notice you exist.LOL. To be fair, you guys have to deal with about 100 time more cyclists than I do.

Cyclists don't pay for it.Share the road! We all pay for it and have to use it together.
