Why all this hate mail against cyclists?
12:00pm Thursday 16th August 2012 in Read
SIR – Isn’t it about time the Worcester News stopped printing hate mail about cyclists?
If all cyclists were Jews or Muslims you wouldn’t dare do it.
Surely you should lead with some common sense and not encourage the public to see us as targets.
Yesterday I got told off by a woman because I was doing about two miles an hour on the pavement – I will add that the length of my transgression was about 50 metres.
The lady in question was leading a German Shepherd dog.I could have quite easily said to her that the dog should be muzzled.
I didn’t, though, because all dogs don’t bite just as all cyclists aren’t looking to injure anyone.
I’m trusting that all the people who take the trouble to write to the editor about us lycra louts have never exceeded the speed limit in any situation, never put their foot down to beat an amber light and are in fact almost saintly.
