'Tis the fcuked up mindset of this clown and thousands of peoples like him that is the primary cause of the "dangers of cycling."

Something Oedipal perhaps? :roll:
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

So many things you could do to Richard, so little time. :cry:

Anyone dumb enough to use their real name when making comments like that on the Internet definitely isn't an intellectual giant.…

Bike riding is more dangerous! and yet we allow our kids on the roads when they are not even old enough to drive a car. If we allowed them to drive a car at any age it would be more safer.


Same argument can be made about his position as president of a footy club. Would I want my kid to be at risk of a neck/spinal injury? Would I want my kid to be pummelled every week like a piece of meat? Would I want my kid to grow up to become a drunken rapist with little respect for women? Would I want my kid to become a hooligan who thinks he's above the law?

I can understand this is an emotional thread, i do.
But i see this trend of 'covering up' swear words, and i don't like it. (and it is not just this thread either)

I don't want to start a discussion about this in this thread, so i started another thread,
Feel free to discuss that here

I just wanted to say that I don't think swearing is appropiate, even if you put ***** or spam instead.
we all know what it means..

:oops:




You see, it's all in the mind :mrgreen:

Geez, I bet he never played wheelie bin cricket on the street as a kid either, or kicked a footy! The streets belong to the people in the city, and since only 60% of them are the right age group to drive cars, this guy has no perspective.

The kid was too old to legally ride on the footpath. Where exactly are kids supposed to ride?

Riding a bicycle is not seen as a viable form of transport, that is clear in the comment and wider community.

Such a waste of promising young life.

Peace out.
