I was walking the dog this morning, and chatting to a perfectly nice couple about our respective dogs (dog owners do this sort of thing) on the path just above the beach.
Along came a little gaggle of bicyclists, and their leader started shouting obscenities at my new acquaintances, apparently because their dog – which was on a lead and being perfectly well-behaved – had caused them to slow down.
What is it about bicycles that caused their riders to be so often bad-tempered? They are always shouting abuse at cars. It is the funny tight plastic clothes they wear, I wonder?
