It's actually legal to ride one-handed and use a cell phone (sic) on a bike  ;D
Never tell me the odds.

Roger,
those Daily Mail readers should be forcibly taken to the Netherlands for a day. Its common to see two toddlers on a parents bike, not a helmet in sight. People normally cycle along looking at their smartphones.

The Netherlands are looking at making it illegal to use a phone while riding. I suspect that will be as successful as making phone use illegal while driving.

I could swear a bloke on the Old Kent Road this morning was on a conference call while he was riding.

I bet he wasn't wearing high-vis or a helmet either.

Hilarious indeed  ;D

The stupidity of motorists that I see each and every day trying to save a couple of seconds off their journey time is simply crazy. 

On your bike.

TV presenter loses rag:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/infuriated-richard-madeley-loses-it-11043541

Very unprofessional of Richard Madely, even the dimmest dimwit could see that there was a delay between the asking of a question and the recieving of it, (bouncing off a satalite I presume). The time delay doesn't make for good continuity when broadcasting, but sometimes that's a fact of life and a professional should be able to cope.

I lose my rag just by seeing a copy of the Daily Mail.  Have solved that problem by not walking down that aisle in the supermarket.  And no one reads newspapers on commuter trains anymore.

Am almost tempted to try to become a professional comedian so that I can appear on Mock the Week for headlines you would least expect to see.
