Re cyclists problems with other traffic, generally I would agree its not much fun on the roads these days, but I would say - try it on a horse! Thats when it gets scary. We have a large woodland near our village which has cycle tracks and bridle paths. However very often have cyclists leaving the designated tracks and make their own paths through the woods often cutting across the bridle paths. Not much fun when your having a gallop in one of the only areas accessible to horses and then have a cyclist fly straight across your path. Thats what cars seem to do to them but maybe they should think twice when they do it to others.
