On page 2 of the Sunday Mail (14 Nov) Tony Pilkington was complaining about cyclists going up and down Greenhill Rd to Mt Lofty - and how some poor unfortunate motorist might one day hit one or more of them.
The tone of the piece was disparaging and prejudiced. He sniggered about all these "would-be Lance Armstrongs". He gave the distinct impression cyclists were usurpers on the roads, getting in the way of four-wheel-drives powering into the Hills.
When are these commentators going to wake up to the reality that cyclists have as much right to be on the road as anyone else?
Old petrol-head attitudes die hard in this new age, carbon reduction, keep fit world.
