You won't be allowed bikes, they will all be confiscated and destroyed, and all lycra burned, with or without you in i >:(

I'd actually vote for Corbyn (heaven forbid) before that ;D

Yup and I can't help fear that whatever is done it will do everyone a dis-service and put cyclists at even more risk than before.  Cycling UK has the right balance, that this gap in law should be looked at as a part of a wider consultation in to the RTA, dangerous road designs and dangerous vehicles.

How is it that driving a truck, half blind, whilst going more than twice the speed limit only dangerous driving? Why is it that society accepts this, which happens frequently,  but goes nuts over something else that occurs between 1-3 times a year?

{For a little balance}Between where I park the car and where I work there is a bridge over the railway lines,this is a footbridge/cycle way.It's just wide enough for two pedestrians to walk side by side without touching the walls or rubbing shoulders.So if I see a cyclist approaching or become aware of one behind me I turn sideways on and step back a little to allow them to pass on their way.Without exception they all acknowledge this by saying thanks/cheers or other such expression of gratitude.The other day I did this and a teenage lad on his way to school passed and on doing so said "thank you and enjoy your day"and I replied in similar vein thinking to myself what a pleasant polite young man. :y

That situation would be eased by having a "Cyclists dismount" sign at either end of the bridge: not that any of them would take any notice of it!

Hats off to Peter Sagan for winning the World Road Race Championship for the third year running, a feat never done before.

Oh look.......http://road.cc/content/news/229833-driving-ban-motorist-who-%E2%80%9Cabandoned%E2%80%9D-cyclist-after-knocking-him-bike

a firkin driving ban for knocking over and abandoning a cyclist.  How is that different from a hit and run?

It's almost like the ability to drive a car is seen as a right that comes without any responsibility, these days. No matter how much of a horse's @rse you make of it. I really don't know why our system tolerates drivers who behave like this. Surely buses and trains are ideal for them or even, dare I suggest it, cycles!
