On Yer Bike !!!!¬

So, you know I have a love/hate relationship with cyclists ....that has not changed.

Today, on crossing a pelican crossing which was bleeping green , which meant traffic lights were red...a cyclist narrowly crossed my path saying'oh sorry!'

On Saturday , after beginning my walk across a Zebra Crossing at which car drivers had stopped after seeing me I heard a cyclist go'Christ' as I crossed and he carried on cycling within inches behind me !

I convince myself its me or my nerves ( my sister was run over at a Zebra Crossing when we were in Junior School) but then I remember the situations : the red light, Zebra Crossings and Car drivers obeying the rules of the road  and I think.......What the hell!!! Do some cyclists think they are beyond the law ? I really don't get it!

    Rule 71: A red traffic light applies to all road users. Cyclists must not cross the stop line if the traffic lights are red. Use the separate stop line for cyclists when practical.

    Rule 79:  Cyclists and motorists must look out for pedestrians waiting to cross at zebra crossings and be ready to slow down or stop to let them cross. ...Pedestrians have  priority over vehicles and bicycles according to the Zebra,Pelican and Puffin Pedestrian Crossings Regulations
