I got clipped by a bus (the driver 'hates f**king cyclists') on Anchor Road, then saw a dead cyclist on The Portway. Another shitty day in Britain's flagship 'Cycling City'.

Terrible news. :(

I nearly got clipped by a bus the other day on Whiteladies road and regularly get cut up and pulled on during my daily commute from Clifton to Westbury. To call Bristol a cycling city is a F*cking joke! They are planning to spend a lot of the money on educating cyclists, well IMHO, it's not us that needs educating, it's the F*cking drivers who treat us like scum!

I am sorry to hear about the cyclist today, :cry: my Missus is seriously worried on a daily basis if I'll make it home.

'takes hat of, and places to heart' its a dangerous game this cycling, but i wouldn't do anything else. my heart goes out to the cyclists family.
