Lycra louts about.

@DEEDOODLE So you don't mind being held up behind a MS but you detest being held up behind the lycra louts - is that correct?

I thought the road tax (or whatever you like to call it) was no longer based on emissions, certainly not for new cars since last year! Clearly the government weren’t raking in enough money with that scheme and it has now reverted to the previous scheme. Low emission cars no longer pay £20 but now pay £170, none of which will go to pay for filling in the pot holes!

@majorp - at least mobile scooters serve a useful purpose of transporting disabled people form a to b. @ER113 - 'cycles make no emissions' maybe not directly, but the emissions they cause by the tail back of vehicles sitting behind them as they part take in their hobby does, may be they should be taxed on that then. As to road tax, insurance, mot, license etc you are missing my point - ...

As usual Deedoodle resorts to slurs and innuendo to make a point. What is obvious, as I stated, was that overtaking was simply not possible based on the available video evidence.  Road to twisty, too narrow and no adequate visibilty. His claim about the speed of vehicles is irrelevant. Speed limits everywhere relate to maximum speeds only and say nothing about minimum speeds. Cycles are ...

Imagine if you found yourself behind a fleet of mobility scooters, what you have to say about that when their top speed on the road is 10mph?

@burneside , true, so much for 'brexit means brexit'. I'm hoping for a vote of no confidence and then get a new PM. Perhaps Boris and co are waiting to do it after the presidential visit.

Well we seem to have put all our eggs in one basket with our EU membership, and I don't see how May's pretend Brexit is going to change the situation much.

America is only a small part of the rest of the world, and I think we would be fools to put all of our eggs in one basket, but trump would like us to do that - he is a businessman after all.

@ER113 13 jul 2018 10:58 - i can only assume you must be a blind person not to see the obvious on the video. Why any vehicle that can only attain speeds of a few miles an hour for pleasure purposes only and no requirement for road tax, insurance, mot or a license, registration should be allowed to use roads with a 30mph plus speed limit should be obvious. You weren't one of the cyclist's in ...

Having studied this video several times it is clear that any form of overtaking was not possible for almost its entire length. That is, no car could safely pass for all but about 1 second of the video. The car in front could not see far enough forward to make a safe manoeuvre. Cyclsist were proceeding properly at all times and, given that they have a legal right to be on the road, they did nothing ...
