Poll :

If you were queuing in a certain fried chicken premises in Cook Street would you :

A. Wonder what in Heavens name you are doing there ?

B. Stop yourself from throwing up at the state of the place?

C. Wonder what are you doing there not drunk in the early hours of the morning?

D. Suddenly realise who owns the place and give the unfortunate staff there a huge tip ?
 
How does the following bus routes manage to fit down this " laneway "

Routes 220, 216 and 223 ?

Some laneway alright

It's a road, end of story

Yes it's a road. It's also a laneway though, it's a single lane with the width of a single lane. As such there's not enough width for a car to give safe passing distance to a cyclist. There's no way that the car would be able to give this guy 1.5m space even if he moved in to the left.

There's a reason there's at least two bike symbols painted on that stretch of road.


How cool of you to say " speed limits are a limit, not a target " wow that's so impressive.

What does this even mean? I'm simply stating a fact? Cool? Impressive? What are you on about? I'm right, 50 is the max speed permitted there. There's no obligation on anyone to do 50 there, be they a car, tractor, bus, bike or whatever.

What logical reason would one motorist beep at another for going 40 in a 50 please ?

I can't think of one. But then again I can't see why a motorist would beep a cyclist going 40 in a 50, and yet here we are.

Mr self centred arrogance should have been over to the side rather in the middle, of course he never ever cycled like that.
Because of he did, then he would have no footage.

Again - if he did go over to the side there's no way there's enough room for safe passing space on that lane.
My reference to " holding up traffic " was in general and on every single video that bully boy posts.

No it wasn't in general. What you specifically said was "He cycles along in the middle of that road at 40 kmh, the legal limit is 50. He is therefore holding up traffic."

You're clearly referring to "that road".
