Clogged full of buses, with people squeezing through on bicycles, it looks a lot like the centre of Oxford.

But I assume Oxford doesn't also have loads of back cabs.

It's only a matter of time.  Those things are like the paperclip maximiser.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

A quick google indicates that most cabs in Oxford are black and at least some of them are "black cab" design.

As more young riders fill the street, Ferrari climbs on to a wall and yells over the masses of people. He says this event is especially emotional as he recently lost a friend and fellow BikeStormz rider in a motorcycle accident.
“We’re breaking the stereotype every single day. Today there is no beef, no knives, no guns, no robbery. I want you all to be proud of yourselves, no matter what anyone tells you.”
The crowd shouts back: “BikeStormz.”

Admire one of our newest and silliest cycle lanes! When he's talking to the policeman – it's a vaguely delineated strip of what is otherwise a pedestrian zone.

A wheelie is pedalling and a manual is coasting I believe.

https://www.bikeradar.com/mtb/news/article/how-to-manual-32187/

"The difference between the two comes in the way you pop and maintain the height of your front wheel. A wheelie involves pedalling to keep the front wheel up,  whereas a manual is both initiated and maintained by shifting your bodyweight – no pedalling involved. "

We should remember this the next time the police say they've 'no resources.' If only more criminals would ride a bike.

That *is* impressive -  it's almost impossible to get to Corporation Street by bike.

(Normally it's the taxi drivers bringing the city to a standstill, as they've been protesting over the impending low-emissions zone.)

"CCTV is being reviewed and investigations are ongoing in relation to any criminal damage."

Give me a fucking break. A few weeks ago a motorist veered into me deliberately, pinning me to the kerb, screaming that he was going to kill me. I registered it with the police and they did fuck all.

A couple of kids 'riding slowly' and damaging a few cars (sounds like bollocks to me), sound the fucking alarm and call a helicopter. Jesus wept.

Indeed. An organization that institutionally ignores all road crime. Unless there's a suggest the perps may be on push bikes in which case, cancel all holidays and prep the helicopters.
