Well - I'd like to say "apply both thumbs to the pupils of his eyes and keep pressing til I hit bone" but then I'd be in a bit of bother now, wouldn't I?

Do what that guy did...put it on youtube and any other way of getting it out to people so his mates will see what a total fuck wit he is...and pass the vid to the Police. Although I wouldn't apologise like that cyclist did.

Some right nut cases out there. SOME cyclists can be a bit 'holier than thou' at times...sure those who are are the same about all things they do... most areas of London and a lot of other cities are a nightmare to cycle around though. This country is along way from being set-up for bikes. One thing that drivers need to rememeber as well is that a cyclist/runner who sounds angry may well just be a bit knackered...its hard to say something softly like ' look out' when you are breathing hard and it can come out as a shout which ramp the situation up.

Oh hang on its the NAAFI....big jiggly baby-oiled jubblies...and was that aggrivated man actually of foreigner blood?
TBH, he was in Kent, so probably! Didn't read the report properly, just realised it happened in Romford, say no more, the place is a shithole, full of wannabes!

Just liked one of the comments below the article:

"My deaf friend, using lip reading, has interpreted what he was saying before he got to the bike, it goes:

Whatsa matter you, hey, have-a-no respect
What you think you do hey, why you looking so sad
It's a nice a day , it's a nice a place

Oi shutuppa your face"

Why is it these chavvy fuckwits never gob off at steely eyed dealers of brain damage ??.

It would have been great watching that bloke get his man flange kicked in by the cyclist; a sure fire youtube hit :eye:

It's Romford, The London Road, A118. I know it well, I'm very sorry to say. The altercation started at the Brewery car park, the junction with Waterloo Road.
Normal for Romford. 'The Only Way is Essex' in real life.

PS I really liked the teeth, it looks like someone has adjusted the gaps between them with a saw-set. There's a good orthodontist just up the road.

Specialist dentist in Romford, Essex. Cosmetic dentistry, dental reconstruction (prosthodontics), & braces (orthodontics)


PPS Probably the thing to do is what the cyclist did.
Physical violence is only sensible if you've had lots of practice and are confident of winning, or if there's no alternative.
The cyclist has probably had this happen previously. So be apologetic, video it, post it on Youtube, complain to the Police (and be told it's a civil matter).

I failed to notice what did the cyclist do, other than dare to use the same road as the silver Fiesta?

Of course it's hard to tell from the video but he didn't appear to be weaving in and out of traffic and generally doing his own thing as is the style in Westminster/central London

Oi watch what you say about Kent its my adopted county at the moment. Just.
I have a video myself of someone apologising to me after he got uppity on the road...I should put it up. BMW driver who swerved across two lanes (he later blamed his sat nav ffs...) and then stopped dead at lights, I predicted him luckily and avoided collision in back of him and luckily no one hit me, I then clamly mouthed 'you twat' clearly to him and he got out and started jumping about like a monkey, which was appropriate, trying to throw girly punches and then he calmed down and I switched my phone on slyly as he apologised. I then told him to park up and he apologised some more.
Respec! You are a Saint. God loves you.

I have only had one "serious" incident.After he cut me up,some chav cnut came over and started mouthing off through my window.
He didn't see my Rotty until she put her head around the door pillar and curled her lips back,exposing her teeth.
He then became very apologetic as he backed away.

I'd like to start a rumour that the chap in the flat cap is Banker, his last post on this thread proves it.

What would I do? Do you mean before or after the snaggle-toothed mong was spitting out teeth and bits of my helmet camera?

When I did a lot of cycling in the '60/'70s we differentiated between cyclists - enthusiasts who maintained their bikes and obeyed the laws of the road - and bike riders who did neither.
Back then I saw three amusing incidents:

1. On a club run on the outskirts of London the front of the club (we were riding in twos) was cut up by a taxi driver who laughed and carried on leaving four cyclists in a humppled creep on the road. By chance we had with us the two lads who held several South-Eastern region tandem records. They set off in pursuit and caught up with the taxi a mile down the road stopped at traffic lights. He was still there a few minutes later when the rest of the club passed. He seemed to have had a sudden nose bleed...

2. On the New Bedford Road in Luton a cyclist was 'turned left' by a car. The driver got out and walked back to the cyclist who had been knocked off his bike and was just getting up, "No damage then" said the driver and walked back to his car. "No" said the cyclist throwing his bike into the side of the car. He then got back on and rode away leaving the driver with a dented and scratched rear door.

3. Riding my trike through Bayswater a driver started crowding me into the kerb. I used my horn which he ignored and pulled so far to the left that the wheel nut on my offside bored into the door and opened a foot long gash. He went librarian poo but, luckily, a bobby had witnessed the incident and threatened to run the car diver in for dangerous driving.

To save the snide comments, this is a modern trike and yes, I could ride a bike!

May I be the first to recommend you for a VC?
