Tsk Tsk, riding in a big bunch, holding up traffic on a narrow road, what do you think going to happen.

Looks like you got what you were looking for, trouble.
I see these morons regularly in Auckland, riding in a bunch of 10 to 20 and thinking themselves to be above the law, holding up traffic, swearing at the motorists who hoot or struggle to pass then as they ride 3 or 4 abreast.
No sympathy from my end at all. Pity the cops dont seem to care either

I cant wait to read about a 20 ton truck smashing into them clowns

You cannot be serious?!

'Got what they were looking for'?!- So for the slight road misdemeanour of cycling in a bunch (and if you'd read the article, you'd notice that this was not the case in this instance) your attitude is that cyclists deserve to die? This is nothing short of moronic.
