Spitting feathers . Grin
Never been accused of that before !
An interesting debate... with one common denominator.

The Dreaded Cyclists.
Whether repairing a puncture by the side of the road or else riding 3 abreast in a war party on painted bikes in skinny tight lycra!

Oooooh Matron!

Like one of the other contributors I have rarely felt compelled to comment, but on this occasion I will.

The thread has I think become polarised about particular pet hates...  which leads to inevitable 'grouping' such that everyone in a particular category is guilty...  I'm a cyclist and will be out and about the village a couple of times a week... I cycle considerately - stopping at traffic lights and zebra crossings, giving way to pedestrians, riding single file, and generally ride with a sense that I share the road with other people....  and I think that's the issue here - consideration,or lack of, for other users of a shared space - our roads and footpaths... 

I could add any number of inconsiderate actions - parking on pavements restricting access for prams and wheelchairs, dog owners that knowingly allow their animals to foul on footpaths, dog owners that go to the effort of bagging the poo but then leave the little plastic wrapped parcel on the path presumably for someone else to pick up, people who park on winter hill and seem to regard it as an official place to dump litter, and so on....  and you can add some horse riders and cyclists to the list along with a plethora of others....

My point is it is not fair to tar a particular group of road users with the same brush... in fact, I think it's a much bigger issue - societal - about changing attitudes to consideration for our fellow human beings...
