Just had a policeman tailgate me, beep at me to get out the way and then tell me to use the cycle path!
When they inevitably stopped 10 metres away I called him out on it. He conceded it was not mandatory but said it was for my own safety. This coming from someone who has just sat 10 inches from my back wheel and tried to bully me off the road.
I know there's planks everywhere but I was surprised by his rhetoric. He wasn't far away from telling me I don't pay road tax.
