A cyclist who knocked over and killed a 44 year-old woman in east London last year has been cleared of her manslaughter.

This was an interesting case that has attracted a lot of media coverage i suppose cos it's rare for something this to happen.  Sounds to me like tthe verdict was probably right.  I do a bit of cycling now and again and this time I agree with the husband of the victim.  Though he was acquitted of manslaughter the cyclist was convicted under some law that dates from 1861 and was meant to cover the driving of horse and carts.  The law needs updated and I think cyclists should be brought under the modern laws that cover cars etc where that is relevant.

This guy came across as a bit of a dick and though that's not against the law, riding this type of track bike on the road is, and he was in the wrong even if he hadn't hit anyone, that's why theyre called track bikes.  The prosecution accepted taht the victim has stepped out into the road in front of the cyclist about 6m away and then stepped back into his path as they tried to avoid one another but argued that if the bike had front brakes he would have been able to stop and the court accepted this.  But it looked like he's going to get a spell at her maj's pleasure.

A rare enough case but to cyclists - track bikes belong on the track, they're built for speed, don't ride them on the road especially in a city.

Why don't a crowd of us get together, arrive at punt kick's door with evidence of him being a complete idiot with several chips on his shoulder (I cite 188 examples on this forum alone) read them back to his parents/siblings (I'd bet my house on the fact he doesn't have a partner), film it and stick it up on FB and all have a good laugh.

Contrary to what some of the grumpy, self entitled pricks on the board would have you think, there aren't tens of thousands of cyclists on the roads every day.  Watch out for the hundreds of joggers who push people in front of cars.  It happens all the time.

Dubs will win easy.  Who will the Tyrone fans fight on the way home?

Ach yesterday was just a flop.  It was like Lurgan Celtic playing Barcelona.  The atmosphere was a disaster as everyone figured out after about ten minutes that it was over.  Literally thousands left at halftime in the Dublin game.  Very disappointing that Armagh didn't give it a go, McGeeney's comments are strange - how can a managers thoughts be so disconnected from what the players just did on the pitch ten minutes earlier. Tyrone's athleticism is impressive and they have a game plan which they implement very well.  Their forwards haven't met McMahon, Cooper etc yet and that's were they will be severely tested.

Some dicks on that road driving back up.  Flying up the inside, cutting in, causing everyone else to break, don't know how there wasn't a pile up - I saw two cars swerve to avoid a serious accident.  Sickening really that a small number of people are prepared to put lives at risk.   

Probably cyclists.

I've no love for Gatlin but Steve Cram's commentary towards him has been a disgrace for years, so in a kind of twisted way I'm delighted.

You would think he is a child rapist the way they are getting on

Or even worse, a cyclist holding up punt kick, Taylor or dclane

Most groups are out on the roads Sat or Sunday at around 7.30 am and finished up before 11 or 12pm during the week you wont get that much either, mornings provided they are dry ya might get the odd nut goingt to work on his bike and in Belfast since the Belfst bike hire there are more but as yet Ive not seen anything thats annoying... during the winter there are hardly anyone out due to the frost/rain/and the dark nights and mornings

So they are either looking for these cyclists all the time, has happened to them once or twice and they have multiplied it by a hundred or they are just grump fat farts who will gripe at anything... I'm going for all of the above

My ranking:

grumpy fat farts who will gripe at anything - 1
has happened to them once or twice and they have multiplied it by a hundred - 2
they are either looking for these cyclists all the time - 3

This thread has to be the biggest wind up!!!

Some are serious, some are on the wind up!  There's a couple of posters here who must spend their days driving around the country looking for cyclists to get offended by!
