    How about this for a rallying call

    Apparently, he was being ironic. It’s like that time I had 10000 spoons when all I needed was a knife.

    Which would only be ironic if I needed the knife to stab a Clarkson-wannabe editor of a free magazine. Or something.

    I read that as a comment on the whole country’s view of cycling.

    This country generally f#^%ing hates cyclists. Then the TdF and the Olympics came along, Britain’s done well,all the plebs are cheering.
    Olympics over, back to normal.

    Very insightful on his part. He is a cyclist, I take it?

    Loads of local cycle related business have redraw adverts from the mag now. And it’s all been kicking off on twitter all day about it.

    His statement isn’t so bad I suppose when you see it in context, but if you substituted ‘cyclists’ for Jews / black people / asians, then you think how offensive it is.

    At least if he gets sacked that will be one less Chelsea (Richmond) tractor jamming the roads up in rush hour!
