Cyclists give innocent motorist ‘a huge fright’

A Herald reader said cyclists' attitudes made driving treacherous for motorists.

He had been driving on a rural road with his family when he turned a corner to find cyclists riding side-by-side.

"I had nowhere to go without crossing the centre line - fortunately I was driving slow enough to stop, this time," he said. "This gave me, and my family, a huge fright."

The cyclists then rudely told him they were in a race, he said.
