You cant get from Douglas to where he is on the Kinsale roundabout without being on the dual carriageway.

He is an absolute menace.


Clearly Jank with his put downs about someone driving a van not having a third level education. He presumes a lot for such a total ignorant browl.

Surprised at you tbh defending such a complete pig.

If I was cycling from Douglas to town that's not the route I'd take personally. That roundabout is dangerous enough in a car.

And surely that route is about twice as long than going straight in the Douglas Road to town.

More opportunities for fights if you cycle midlane in a dual carriageway.

'This is a national road'.


Jank m8, seek some kind of treatment for anger management. You will give yourself a banger with this carry on.
It's not healthy.


 
In any of these I’ve seen he’s initially technically right but that’s only a part of the story.

Two issues from my perspective that undermine everything:
- He seems to knowingly put himself in danger, if you cycle with any regularity you’d know all about that pinch point on George’s Quay and wouldn’t dare risk it by not exercising additional caution there. There’s a pinch point further on as you cross over parliament bridge where the foot path kinks out where Maddens TV is, and there’s another one by Southern Star. You just have to be extra cautious in places like this where the road inflects back.
- He very quick cedes the high moral ground by picking fights with everyone. “Being right” and “winning the argument” seems to be more of a priority for him than safety. And perhaps as others mention, he seeks out these situations for Twitter attention.

I’m a huge fan of cycling but this carry on is doing no good.
Cycling is meant to be healthy & enjoyable, whether commuting or going for leisure spins. He seems to be up for an argument & to prove he's right all the time to the detriment of being in a nasty accident some time.He does appear to be putting himself out there especially in those known pinch points as you say. If he keeps doing that the odds are against him big time.
He's countering the health benefits of cycling by being angry & aggressive multiple times per day. That's not good for ya at all.
 
Corks own says cycling is his number one way of keep fit, he'd want to put his helmet on right do :D

The last bit of that story needs another mention lol
