    How many do cars kill?

    Edit: "over 4 dogs a year" sounds like it's not quite 5, do we kill 4.62 dogs a year?

    But do we kill them while cycling? 🙂

    It should be the other way round surely! I sometimes wonder if the dog I ran over (sending me over the bars at some speed) survived the experience, at the time it ran back into the woods yelping as I writhed about on the floor swearing at its owner.

    I once killed a squirrel – not quite a dog, I know 🙂

    Huh? 4 dogs are killed in total each year by cyclists, or we kill an average of 4 each per year?

    Its his irritating voice and the way he can only talk at you while looking sidesways on Panorama (the new dumbed down version) that really get me…

    Remember to give an extra big smile and a wave to all the grumpy car drivers you see today. 🙂

    It's the main reason I ride a bike actually. To kill dogs. I love it. 🙄

    uplink – were you that guy that got a squirrel caught in his rotor once?!

    Did Jeremy Vine have a frontal lobotomy when he moved to Radio 2? I used to respect the guy…but now he's an inflammatory idiot.

    The Jeremy Vine program is pathologically averse to cyclists. No doubt the dogs were crossing the park whilst lights were red so folk can rant about us running lights too.

    Perhaps the fact that there are a fair number of cyclists out there who act like ejits without any regard to the Highway Code that your average Radio 2 listener gets wound up and feels the need to vent their spleen….. 😀

    I had a Staffy get his head stuck between my front wheel and forks once after going for the front wheel.

    Hardly a scratch on the dog, but boy are those things strong, glad he got my wheel and not my leg 😉

    Jeremy Vine, was ticked off by a policewoman for cycling in a London park:

    What tyres for most effective dogkill?

    21 dogs are needlessly destroyed every day in the UK – from the interweb so must be true

    apparently there were around 7.2 million pet dogs in the uk in 2008.

    4 in a year = hang all cyclists 😆

    Alas, no – it was on a road bike, it made a dash across the road & was promptly stopped by the front wheel, rapidly followed by the rear 🙂

    It's nice to see that the egregious Vine is focusing on the big issues, and not playing to the Daily Mail gallery.

    Well I mangled a dog in my rear wheel just last week. It was trying to mangle me before I got it though..

    lol at jeremy vine whinging about people riding bikes in the PARK of all places.

    has he got kids?
    if so can they ride bikes?
    if so, did the learn to ride on the roads of central london?
    teetering haphazardly around the m25 perhaps?

    according to a group of locals aparently – coz thats gospel then 🙂

    How many people have been knocked off, fallen from their bikes or bitten by dogs?

    They really are getting desperate for stories arn't they?

    Cyclist faster than the speed of light (too fast to be seen)! That lets me off

    I use a bell and don't cycle in a park.

    Just a few dam cyclists giving us a bad name.

    4 dogs?

    What about the cyclists killed on the road each day???

    **** mutt (I do slow down for them though)

    4 dogs a year? is that all? Note to self, must try harder, but to be honest, I find the car is much easier and safer when it comes to killing dogs.

    the worrying thing with these programs as they send out an message to everyone that Cyclists are fair game as there bad people…
