For this brave enough to go exploring the murky depths at the bottom of the gene pool, the vile Keith Peat has been quick to gloat  http://www.driveeastmidlands.com.

Ironic that the layout of this blog is itself, something of a car crash. Forget the content (which takes some effort to follow) - it's just a mess.

I tried to ignore it, but that blog just pulls you in; some bits are hilarious. Here is how he has used the incident where Chris Froome crashed into the back of an official TourDeFrance moto, as evidence for the menace cyclists pose:

Quote
Road Race Cycling is unique in that there is no entrance fee for spectators, unlike other major sports and entertainment events because they are held on long stretches of public road where it isn't possible to control the public.

 What these cyclists forget is, that they are riding vehicles on public roads and that it is their duty to avoid accidents and for their self protection too.

 The principle must be that others must come first and only ride at a speed and distance at which you are able to stop safely. The motorcyclist clearly did exactly that.

 These cyclists, including Froome, failed to apply those rules despite very close and confined conditions which included many members of the public.     

 This crash happened because cyclists were cycling too fast and dangerously among public on public roads. It really is that simple.

It's a race, dude!!!

Yes, he's not worth spending too many thoughts on - though his blog did suck me in yesterday as Mattc commented - strangely compelling in a morbid fascination type way.

If you're involved with enough cycling events you'll know people who've died on them, or people who are connected, who've died in other cycling circumstances. For all that the health benefits of exercise outweigh the accidents, it doesn't make it any easier.

Chris has been at the centre of cycling long enough to have seen that. It's one thing to rationalise the loss of people you encounter in your career or pastime, another to come to terms with the loss of your own mother in the same pastime.

His appreciation of his mother was very moving.

Let's not forget Keith Boardman, a very valued member of the cycling community, as a participant and coach.

I'm also heartened by the way that Chris's friend, Jens Voigt, has stepped in to fill the void in the Tour coverage.

Good god. An A1 grade certifiable loon. It's not often that one single person (apparently) can generate quite so much contradictory nonsense. Maybe the internet isn't such a good idea. But for the wonders of modern technology people like this would be restricted to wandering the streets wearing a sandwich board.

After looking at that ... well, troglodyte's ... site, the following came to mind (apologies to MattC)

I tried to ignore it, but that blog just pulls you in; some bits are hilarious. Here is how he has used the incident where Chris Froome crashed into the back of an official TourDeFrance moto, as evidence for the menace cyclists pose most motorist crashes into cyclist incidents could be summarized:

Not only the driver for causing death by dangerous driving, but also the couple for attempting to pervert the cause of justice.

Be an interesting one to watch.

It will interesting to compare the eventual outcome of this with the Charlie Alliston case. Will we be looking at a long prison sentence - or a 6 month ban and a derisory fine?
