Psycho cyclist

Posted on Mon, Jul 15, 2013 at 9:00 PM

I think cycling to work is great and love seeing people on bikes BUT at around 9:30 AM this morning I was walking up Salter Street from Barrington when I heard someone frantically yell "HEY HEY HEY.”  It was some nutbar on a bicycle barrelling down the middle of the wet street at a ridiculous speed (possibly exceeding the speed limit). He was yelling at a pedestrian who was crossing along Argyle at a normal walking pace. The pedestrian was already halfway through the intersection so definitely had the right of way in the first place. If the cyclist had struck the pedestrian he would have caused some serious injury to the pedestrian - not to mention himself.    Message to this  and other kamikaze cyclists: it's up to you if you wnat to take your own lfie into your hands but you can do some serious damage or even kill a pedestrian with your reckless behaviour.  Grow the frick up! Now! — Walking man
