was stopped at the red, and this guy on an MTV comes whizzing behind me clips the bus and rams his front wheel into the back of mine as he tries to jump the red light. No apology, he gets up jumps back on his bike and pedals through while it is still red. What an utter censored !

    Well that's Music Television for you! Fast, aggressive and makes no apologies for what it does.... :wink:

    What time was this? I've seen a MTB cyclist like that before on Tooley St doing almost exactly what you describe (apart from the collision)

    It was about 10.10 am and the guy looked South American maybe?

    Oh, too early for me then, and the rider I saw looked native.

    Did he look like this?
    Fixed gear for wet weather / hairy roadie for posing in the sun.

    What would Thora Hurd do?

    Not exactly - he wasn't wearing a hat. I was too shocked to give him any verbal :?
