A nuisance cycle lane that appears from nowhere

What bloody idiot pratt halfwit put this cycle lane on Bridge Road ? It appears WITHOUT warning from nowhere, and it then disappears just as abruptly near Wickes, and appears to go nowhere. Where is it suppose to go from and to ? There are enough JAY WALKERS as it is in and around the town centre, who cross the road without looking, or are glued to their phones or MP3 players, and cyclists who do NOT indicate. Sorry but I pay road tax unlike these freeloaders (yes there are a few good cyclists) and they hold up the traffic to a funeral procession, and cause everyone to use more fuel because we are in thew wrong gear. Another cockup, and I used to love the short lived roundabout by Wickes, and now we have those poxy traffic lights.

This is not Holland or Denmark, and whoever put these cycle lanes here needs their head reading, all they do is piss off motorists.

Your Grosses Fuckwit pratts.

Thanks for nothing you wankers !!!!! You are about as irritating as a bad toilet blockage.

  • Please ignore this uncouth, uneducated idiot. This road has always been dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians because of speeding motorists using it as a race track between the lights. He’s a coward by remaining anonymous.

  • Bullshit - on approach to the crossing by Waitrose, if its on red I Stop to let pedestrians cross. However, even when on green, they play chicken and still cross over when its green for me and red for them. Wrong mate.

    They will walk all around the roundabout instead of using the underpass as well - jaywalking.

    The is no SIGN to warn of a new cycle lane on approach, and the lane is twice the width what is actually needed. Go to the Netherlands, their cycle lanes are nowhere near as wide as this one, and they have separate push button crossings for cyclists. Someone has an agenda against motorists. How the hell will any potholes be repaired with just the one lane ?

    This was some bullshit vanity P.R. project dreamed up by jobsworths, at a time when we should concentrate on fighting Corona Virus.

    I'm not a coward by remaining anon (like you also have) and we do not live in a free society any more, so I'm not stupid. Local councils have destroyed retail for years, removed free parking in many towns, and its killed shops, this was going on long before online shopping.

    There are good cyclists, but many do not indicate and expect other users to mind read where they are going.

    Once again, this is wasted money. I do not speed over 30, but I suspect you may have an agenda against motorists. The local council in WGC is not always the brightest either, e.g. the way it chopped down many healthy trees the other year around Stanborough Lakes, and then cited 'heath and safety[' when this was untrue. The width of the cycle lane is far too wide, and needs to be halved. If the traffic lights were got rid of and replaced with roundabouts, you would have less 'racing' between lights, and less to go wrong (they are often plagued with electrical faults). If plod was on a motorbike to catch the speeders then it would solve the problem.

    Are you an apologist for the council ? Or maybe one of their lackies who built this white elephant ?

    This is just stupidity, what's next, maybe a statue of Greta Thunberg on the John Lewis roundabout and we all have to bow down to it ?

    Cyclists are a damn nuisance, especially out of town on narrower winding roads, they just hold up all the traffic, and cause people to drive in the wrong gear. It would even knacker the battery on an electric vehicle.

    Being a cyclist, is for some just an excuse to wear kinky lycra clothing :) and not give any hand signals to where they are going.

    Now please will you go to the John Lewis roundabout, and strip naked and do a funky chicken impression.

    This cycle lane was a stupid idea. What's with the 'Cats eyes' ? Hopefully a few of the buggers will get splashed, or maybe it might give the gulls and pigeons a way to lock onto their target more accurately and carpet bomb them from a safe height.

    Now please be a good jobsworth and run along :)

  • If your free at the weekend you could join my girlfriend and I for a threesome :) We could dress up in Lycra and maybe even some leather clothes.
