  • Pause for Thought

    From Diane Louise Jordan, presenter of The Sunday Hour.

    I used to cycle everywhere in the small home-counties town I grew up in - it was a relaxed Enid-Blyton type affair- whicker basket on front, sweet sounding bell...

    Then I grew up, got a car, moved to London and the cycling ceased.

    As a driver I couldn't understand why city cyclists were so aggressive - waving their fists, banging on sides of moving vehicles, jumping red lights.

    When I recently reestablished myself as a cyclist I vowed never to be like them. Although the remarks about my bravery were noted! Apparently city cycling takes courage.

    Initially it was pure pleasure. Then my temperature started rising. It would seem that to some cyclists are completely invisible!!

    A polite ring of the bell or even desperate shout is more often ignored by a too closely overtaking motorist or even pedestrians, who throw a derisive glare in our direction whilst leisurely jay-walking into our path, leaving us precariously negotiating oncoming traffic.

    Just this weekend a car took a left turn and nearly wiped me out in the process - pleasure is evaporating.

    I could go on and on about incidents that have now reduced me to an angry, hand waving [or shouty] cyclist, but I'm sure you've got the point. Essentially I'm upset about how inconsiderate we're capable of being to one another.

    And honestly, hands up, I'm definitely including myself. Although it wasn't until I became a born-again cyclist I realised just how inconsiderate I can be.

    So perhaps my attitude towards other road users is a metaphor for how I live - totally bound up with wanting others to consider me, I don't always recognise their needs, even though scripture says: 'do unto others as you'd have them do to you."

    So now I'm challenged with driving and living considerately, in the hope that my reformed behaviour encourages fellow blinkered motorists, or indeed anyone, who struggles to regard others...
