Cyclists

Jeebus. 90Kph on a bicycle? I've very seldom gone on motorbikes either. Just don't think they're very safe modes of transport tbh. And certainly not at 90kph.

40Kph in a modern car with airbags and good protection I'd feel a hell of a lot safer.

Climbing ladders you're trained to have 3 points of contact at all times. Cars have 4 points of contact with the road. Bicycles and Motorbikes just 2. Not as safe imho
Yes, a bit mad but it was exhilarating. Good road surface is essential and yes, I was wear my helmet. I'd do it again if I was on one of the roads in the alps as the surface is good and you can see what's coming up. Some TDF cyclists hit 130km going downhill. Sam Bennett can cross the line in a race accelerating to more than 70kph on the flat, insane power. He's no tdf wannabe, he won the green jersey last year in the tdf and he learned his trade on Irish roads.

Fair enough if you think 40kph is too fast, each to their own I guess. I'd easily hit 40kph on the flat, that's what i'm used to I guess.

Why the fuck is there a bike symbol in the middle of the road then?? Do you not understand signage on a road??

While it might have been courteous of JG to pull in and let the entitled motorist to pass, JG had every right to cycle in the lane as he did. The bike symbol indicates cycling priority.
Link? Afaik that symbol painted on the road indicates to motorists that cyclists share the route and to be aware of them. Nothing about them having priority
 
Corks own says cycling is his number one way of keep fit, he'd want to put his helmet on right do :D

Surprised he didn’t get attacked for wearing a helmet. Cyclists can be quite sensitive about helmets.
