in my hometown every1 is very cheerful, i certainly greet every single person i see on the road. ofc i avoid the areas with people and cars so i end up only seeing people every few k, mostly old people.

It's also probably from the fact that he hosts a show that somewhat endorses negligent driver attitudes.

By my own experiences the "grumpy cyclists" thing is very changeble depending on the area; even here in Italy you might be in an area where everybody will send greetings to you, while in another one they will all be either too concentrated to send a greets or simply feeling too superior.

Been riding against him and as James May uses to say, he's bit of a "c@ck".

MotoGP rider Ben Spies is a very good cyclist as I understand it. Even started his own cycle team, elbowz racing. Jenson Button is into triathlon, so owns a flash bike. (Not really a proper cyclist #the rules
