Don't mind cyclists as a driver.

But they really piss me off as a pedestrian. Not just the cunts who cycle on footpaths but the ones who break red lights at pedestrian crossings as well.

Also any cyclist/pedestrian with ear phones on should be arrested on the spot

I don't mind cyclists as long as they realise their true place in the food chain.
The natural hierarchy is:
1. Motorists
2. Pedestrians
3. Cats running across the road
4. Cyclists

I often walk around town wearing headphones.
I'm still aware of all the potential threats around me though, such as cars and women with buggies aimed at my heels.

I actually make a point of it when I'm on my bike to break red lights or mount the footpath if I don't feel like stopping. Drivers are just jealous of us. Same goes for cycling side by side. It's legal and we've as much right to the road as any other vehicle.

Reading all these comments has actually reignited my passion for winding up drivers. I'm going to be doubly obnoxious on my bicycle.

How about widening footpaths so that they can be used by cyclists as well as pedestrians?

If it means narrowing roads then I'm all for it.

In some places the footpaths are wide enough to accommodate both but presumably the cyclist has no right to be on the footpath even if it's a lot safer there than on the road avoiding parked cars while at the same time looking out for the moving ones..
