They need to have those spiked snow tyres on the rear wheel to aerate the lawn at the same time :)

...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

I'd say he doesn't. Looks like his bike is more going across the road than down the road. Adds to the adventure of a ride though wouldn't you say?

I'd say that bike handles like a shopping trolley.

In relation to the first post
I was wondering how often he/she gets on to the big ring and does the grass come up the trouser/skirt?
You'd probably have to use clips! Dunno what you would do with the skirt :P

Re. the shopping trolley - imagine trying to stop with a full trolley and only a rear brake :shock:

Locking the rear wheels of the trolley in the straight ahead position should make it steer properly, .... after a fashion.
