    ahhh, the timbrel vault, as seen on grand designs that once, suffering a partial collapse during construction, niche indeed.

    Wonder how they insure those things?

    Where can I get my hands on one of these “powerful bikes” she talks about.

    Hilarious…. 😀

    She admitted a charge of assault by beating and was given a one year conditional discharge and ordered to pay £100 costs and £25 compensation to Mr Ramage to cover his dry cleaning bill.

    About what she would have got if she had taken him out with a car.

    What makes it worse is you get lots of young men with powerful bikes riding at speed

    the solicitor does know the case was about push bikes, doesn’t she???

    sounds more like “not an expert” 😉

    They should’ve just rubbed her nose in it.

    “He claimed that the attack was the latest in several previous encounters that he has had with Currall while he was cycling and he now dreaded crossing paths with her.” sounds like she is the local mad woman. I’ve come across a similar one who had a thing about cars parking on the pavement and would attack them and their owners with her walking stick.

    This is awesome, I know this guy, he mountain bikes with us.
    Time to take the piss!!

    The two of them sound like proper nobbers
    Her – “At least it shows that I was picking up my dog poo. I just hit him with the bag on his arm” she’s got previous gov, too, a pro.
    Him – ‘mental anguish’ from encountering an old biddy (a pretty mental one admittedly), hardly

    It’s horsesh!t like this that makes the case for the middle classes to be rounded up and force fed white bread and slalom lager. That’d knock some sense in to’em.

    “She did not see him [Ramage] coming in the opposite direction and he was not stopping for her which certainly in the olden days, a man on a bike would have got off and let her through.” The fact that this statement was made by counsell in a court of law makes me sad

    Yeah the story suggests she has previous for attacking neighbours.

    Wonder if she’d got a conditional discharge if she was working class and younger?

    Also he’s a lovely chap.
    There is some serious bike hatred round Cambridge and ime it’s mostly old ladies with dogs. You can’t win. Ring your bell.
    Too far away, they don’t hear. “Can’t you get a bell?”
    Ring the bell continuously <Abuse for being aggressive>
    Too near, <death stare> Are you trying to run me over?
    They turn round, see you before you ring your bell, you continue, smile nicely “Haven’t you got a bell?” Oh sorry, I thought you saw me, and have a nice day too.
    And their effing dogs are always all over the place too.

    I do get where they’re coming from as it’s quite intimidating walking where there are lots of cyclists, some of which cycle like idiots, but some just hate all cyclist.

    I love that he was wearing “all the protective gear”. What, like a helmet? If he hadn’t had a helmet he’d have got abuse for that too.

    Perhaps you should get off your bike and let them through, like they did in the olden days, touching your forelock while you’re at it, like in heartbeat

    I have the utmost respect for the cyclist for not making her consume the contents of ‘offending’ bag (which is both ironic and amusing).

    Whilst Supersoaking a pensioner with the contents of ones bladder wouldn’t result in good karma, it would have been a thoroughly suitable response.

    If being buzzed by bikes on a cyclepath intimidates you, perhaps choose a different route?
    Or would that just be too logical?

    There are lots of quite nice paths that are joint use round Cambridge though.
    I have to say I do usually think WHY exactly do you come out walking your dog off the lead on a major cyclist commute route at 8:30 in the morning, and then seem surprised when you encounter, shock horror, cyclists.

    I was thinking exactly that 😐

    This is hilarious…the pensioner does sound like a right knobber though, if the best thing she can do is to bring up the “olden days” in response to a cycle path being put down then she’s clearly harking back to some non-existent time when cyclists tipped their hats and whistled as they rode, clad in tweed.

    Reminds me of the time a pensioner in a Corsa pulled onto a bridleway specifically to stop me and demand that I stick to the highway code, just in case I might decide to ride on a footpath by mistake…clearly utterly bats.

    You only get them in the home counties.

    “I am not scared of speaking out about cyclists. A while ago, I bought half a dozen cycle bells and handed them out to cyclists in the hope that they would use them.”
