My wife and I are both retired and have difficulty walking. We were exercising our dog on a path near the Adur, which was clearly designated as a footpath with a "no cycling" sign, when three cyclists rode up behind us very fast and forced us off the path, almost running our dog over.

When I asked them to ride with more care, two of them raced away laughing. The third leapt from his machine and delivered a tirade of foul-mouthed threats.

So come on you pedal-pushers, explain to this driver exactly why you deserve my consideration.
