Behaviour of cyclists on our roads under fire

A group of cyclists have been labelled "dangerous dickheads" and "ignorant a**holes" after they were caught on camera taking up the whole road and crossing the centre line despite the presence of oncoming traffic.

At one point during the video, one of the cyclists crosses the centre line around a blind corner and is seen suddenly swerving back onto his side of the road to avoid getting hit.

Road Transport Forum Chief Executive Ken Shirley and Cycling Action Network Project Manager Patrick Morgan joined the Mike Hosking Breakfast to debate the video in question, and to discuss if cycling etiquette on our roads is getting worse.
