Red crosstourer heading away from whitchurch

On our way to the ponderosa this morning and spotted a red crosstourer on the A49 just leaving Whitchurch area heading for beeston. High vis jacket. There was a Triathalon using the A49 too and it got a bit crazy later on!  :789:

maybe a local CT-I have seen one around twice now.The Triathlon happens every few months much to the annoyance of us locals.We gain nothing from it -except traffic congestion and why they have to ride their bikes on the public highway - a main road from Liverpool to Woverhampton -getting in everyones way i dont know.Maybe they pay something for their fun -but otherwise no road tax and just block our roads -what happened to the LAW that says no racing on the public highway?

Hi bazza thought I’d seen a post from you on a red crosstourer nearby. Wasn’t sure if it was something to do with the race as there were lots of vehicle causing mobile chicanes! Jeezus they’re a nightmare. Overtaking without checking and cars stop start on wrong side of the road. I want to know how they’re being monitored on the many 20mph limits where they can exceed speed limits unchecked!

the pedestrians hate the cyclists -who hate the cars -who we also hate .Lorry drivers are resigned to being cut up by most things - buses never really get going .
In Holland the cyclists HAVE TO USE CYCLE LANES if available -here they use what they like ignoring all rules as they cant be identified. Helmets -ha they spoil the hair do .So be an anarchist -get pedalling!
