    A dopey MAMIL on the way over to Kilkenny, I passed him and he immediately he swung out of the cycle lane and started using the sprayer as a pace setter, cycling a yard behind me, so I slowed down and pulled in, he carries on in the cycle lane. I set out again and pass him again, the stupid f7#;3r does the same again and again I have to pull. The stupid b@£5@4d repeats this 4 or 5 times. I ended up having to pass him at speed going up the next hill

    Anything other than a sprayer full of chemical and I would agree with you.

    Well if you think cyclists are bad you should try rickshaw 'drivers'.

    I had one nearly clean the mirror and wing off my car, I beeped the horn at him hard and the cheeky ***** gave me the two fingers.

    If only I had gotten closer to him :2guns::2guns::fight:

    On the road earlier and lo and behold a bike wanker with no less then 10 cars and 2 artics held up behind him. Any number of places he could have stopped into to let the traffic by but no. And I bet the same bollix would be the 1st to f a farmer out of it with a tractor if he was behind one.

    Is a cyclist entitled to hold the road like that?

    I doubt it and regardless a bit of consideration from the prick wouldn't cost to much.

    Saw a cracker monday.
    Had a sheep wagon in front and a bike in front of that.

    Came over the top of the hill and wagon had plenty of room to go, so did

    Damn cyclist took off, basically kept allong side the wagon down the hill..... and heading to a corner. Wagon made it past eventually. But I don't think the cyclist knew how lucky he was to not be squished as he was firmly in the blind spot all the way

    No bike tracks in east cork but I’m out early to make the most of the quiet roads. 40km done already.

    Invested in some powerful lights to make the job safer.

    Both rechargeable. The front one lights up roads signs 80ft away in daylight. It’s 1870 lumens.

    The rear one is extremely bright too.

    I was waiting for that :lol:

    I actually hated the sight of cyclists on the road until I became one. I now have a lot more understanding for them. Of course there are always individuals who give everyone a bad name.
