76. Cyclists in Cambridge who believe that red lights, no entry/one way signs etc don't apply to them, that all drivers are telepathic and will sense when they are about to jump off the pavement without looking, and who also believe that they don't need to use lights in the winter and that pedalling about in dark clothing is sensible.

77. Motorists in Cambridge who have no conception of how to drive in the presence of cyclists - the unbroken white lines on the road on that railway bridge crest are there for a reason. They mean do not cross the white line, not "do not cross the white line unless you're overtaking a cyclist in which case it's OK and never mind the fact that you are completely unsighted and there may be another vehicle about to appear over the crest coming the other way". AND - car drivers - cyclists are another road user just like other cars, buses, trucks and motorcyclists - so why the hell do you try and overtake them on blind bends, or when there are parked cars on both sides of the road and you can't see (or worse, you can clearly see!) what's coming the other way?!

Spleen vented; off to lie down in a darkened room.

Cambridge...ah yes the place I travel through every day...and every day I see the same idiots on two wheels without engines who think Brooklands Avenue is Brooklands motor circuit or that the lights at the Catholic Church are Xmas Decorations or that it is fun to cycle the wrong way up Trinity Street....without lights on, wearing dark clothing. Don't start me on driving or cycling in Cambridge...please...or we can have this run well over 100 " I don't likes"

82. For Dom...drivers on the Madingley Road who think it fun to use the bus lane at the bottom instead of waiting at the lights by the bridge over the M11. Dom and I could go on about the A14, so if you don't live in our glorious part of the world think yourselves blessed.

Michael....your point 100. May I recommend the "scatter gun" approach? Forget about trying to find what you really want to do....have a crack at everything you can!! Then, once you've done enough of each thing to satisfy yourself....go off and do something else. That way, you don't get bored or stuck in a rut, learn all sorts of assorted stuff, and don't limit yourself. Worked/works for me!!
