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”

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’.
