Are Cyclists Viewed As Public Enemy No.1 By Other Road Users?
I don't know about you but I have experienced many situations over the years where other road users have taken exception to my use of the road. In most cases these experiences have amounted to nothing more than a heated exchange of words. I say most as I can remember one occasion many years ago where a car chased me by actually mounting the pavement to follow me. I can laugh about it now but at the time it was pretty scary. By the way I did manage to escape. However, for many cyclists it is no laughing matter having encounting far worse than I ever have. Check out an article written by Helen Pidd over at the Guardian for more.
