    Many cyclists in South Africa do not practise precautionary measures when using public roads, a survey revealed on Friday.

    About 61 percent of cyclists questioned said they did not always wear helmets when they were on the road -- despite 64 percent agreeing that they did not feel safe on the roads.

    When I drive a car, I hate pedestrians. When I'm a pedestrian, I hate motorists. But no matter what my mode of transport might be, I always hate cyclists.

    I was in Hillcrest the other morning and a cyclist jumped one of the (many) red robots you encounter while at the same time a car started going (who was at the green light) and you should have seen the finger work the cyclist gave the motorist.

    Bleh this runner gave us the finger because she said the man was green. But we said you still look left and right before just trusting that green man robot

    I'm quite a cautious person, always thrying to predict what some idiot might do when i'm travelling (car/bike/foot).
    But one rule always remains.. If it's bigger than you, rather give it way
