Intentional life-threatening behaviour is unacceptable.
I fully endorse, and accept as genuine, Magda’s apology “I do not and never would ever seriously suggest hurting a cyclist.”

Champion cyclist Robbie McEwen however must also explain his inflammatory retort to Magda

“you deserve to get hit crossing the road”

(Twitter 30/9/2009).

Nobody deserves to get hit, especially on a crossing.

Many riders speak of the myth of ‘drivers versus cyclists’ when they are also motorists.

Mr McEwen’s remarks seem to perpetuate the myth of ‘cyclists versus everyone’.
