It just totally annoys me when an article about people getting out and doing some exercise and enjoying the countryside – to say nothing of raising money for a good cause – gets hijacked by narrow-minded tribalists. We are ALL road users; and there are good and bad ones out there – two wheeled or four.
ERIC. 5 bikes and 2 cars – none of which pay ‘road tax’.

Well said.

Hundreds of cyclists are getting out there and benefitting their own health by doing this ride, as well as raising funds for the British Heart Foundation. I doubt the family or friends of any of those arguing on here have been untouched by heart disease so tell you what chaps and chapesses, give it a rest maybe?

Good on all those taking part and their sponsors supporting them. I have done this ride several times, unable to this year but will be back next time.

It's very hard to overtake the cyclists SAFELY, especially on the narrow country lanes. Cyclists should respect other vehicles and not swarm all over the road (after all, this is for their safety too) and motor vehicles should give due respect to cyclists and ONLY overtake when safe. As with everything in life, a little consideration goes a long way but is often neglected
