Slow down, check your mirrors, give plenty of room to cyclists. So what if he overtook you earlier and you want to "get back at him". Stop being so pathetic and grow up because that attitude costs lives. I am not saying that is what happened here but it does happen.
    I have no attitude or anger towards cyclists but I did wonder this morning on my way to work (Allington Lane-Eastleigh) why so many cyclists choose to weave in and out of traffic when,on the Bishopstoke Road,there are cycle lanes on both sides of the road (on the pavement)?.
    I dont want to take anything away from the sad news about Mark, but as a cyclist and car driver myself this comment needs a truthfull answer.

    Its motorists attitudes like this (not yours but in general) that put many cyclists in danger everyday. It does not matter if there are cycle lanes they are NOT compulsery and are more often than not more dangerous than the road. for many reasons, i hope the echo can start pushing mps to help make roads safer for all users.

    And yes i agree some cyclists wind drivers up but it does not give a valid reason to take it out on other cyclists. which happens as i know i have never met some people butthey still think i should bee just rammed aside. (not in relation to this accident as im unaware of any facts and will not comment untill after the police investigation is released)"
