Not surprised, not saying its a grockle but, I cycle every day and we seem to be overloaded with cars with roof boxes, drivers of which seem to be blind or not bike friendly. I believe it’s 1.5 meters gap when overtaking a cyclist not 1.5 mm. Anyway 2 more weeks and adios.
Hope the cyclist is ok and they catch the cowardly retarded selfish maniac.

1.5mtr gap for passing eh! Foggy, I’ve been clipped a couple of times by cyclists whilst I was WALKING along Little London, Newport. No warning bells just ignorance. It would be nice if cyclists showed as much respect for walkers as they demand from car drivers.

It’s 1.5 metres when they not riding in the middle of the bloody road Applys both ways not saying this incident but as you say some cyclists are also in the wrong as well as other drivers

I have a roof box on my car and am a born & bread islander.. Seriously?!? Also, it seems to be one extreme or another here in that, people either go right over into the oncoming lane full on or barely a gnats nadgers width around the cyclist.. Accidents happen I get but.. If there isnt the space to overtake then just wait until there is! Its not rocket science
