LADbible: “A place for people”…says the Facebook page. Stop laughing at the back. The information site “created for young people” has immersed itself in the world of cycling to share with its readers the changes to the Highway Code which will come into force next week.
> The public must be informed of changes to the rules of the road, says Cycling UK
As expected, the readership of the site has been rich in healthy debates and constructive comments… no. I said they were complaining about the changes to the rules of the road…maybe it would be more accurate to say that most of the comments were actually about what they wanted to see changed…eg , people riding bicycles on the road.
It’s been too long since I’ve heard the words “road tax”. I never want to hear them again…
None of them pay the road tax, it was abolished in 1937. The roads are financed by council tax and general taxation, so cyclists pay as much as everyone else towards them. All while causing minimal road wear and without causing pollution.

Another classic to come… probably Ben also converted his engine to a single file seating arrangement?
Prevent cyclists from riding next to each other on the roads. Makes me crazy. Single file rule

Insurance is risk based, cyclists are at very low risk. When cyclists do this they will have mandatory insurance pic.twitter.com/ZpWgfHHju2

And, one we’ve never heard before (rare for anti-bike bingo, I know)…
make it a law so cyclists can’t hit country roads at 50mph or 60..

one us definitively already heard…
The new rules of the highway code make it very clear that there is no obligation for them to use the cycle lanes, and that the use of the cycle lanes is a free choice to be made by a cyclist according to his experience and skills and the current situation. You should read it.
