BMW Bully on Bracken Single Track National Cycle Route 1

Whilst most drivers are considerate to cyclists on rural roads, last Sunday we encountered a particularly ignorant and dangerous driver speeding towards the 3 leading riders with lights flashing. The drivers knowledge of the highway code rules appeared to be none existent during this incident of uncontrollable road rage.

The police have acted upon data from the on bike video in similar cases of dangerous driving.

Rule 110 – Do not use headlights to intimidate other road users.
Rule 154 – Country road use
Rule 155 – Use of single track roads with passing places
Rule 167 – Passing Cyclists
