Posted this to SCA , earlier today :
" Contador is TOO Busy to be at " StopKillingCyclists Event " etc
Having had to restart my computer due to loading the latest " Updates " , i found the entry removed . Now i know that i am hard to get along with , but WHEN i am trying to HELP a UK Based " Cycling Safety Org. " you would think the Guy would realise that it was in the INTERESTS OF ALL , to Highlight the event ? Not so as the next effort from me was :
" SEEMS that HELPING OTHER CYCLING SAFETY ORG:s is NOT on YOUR AGENDA !
" StopKillingCyclists " deserves better of YOU , since they give YOU a mention !
YOU make me feel ASHAMED of being an Aussie !
Email me with YOUR Issues at firstname.lastname@example.org IF you are Big enough !"
this brought about a fairly prompt reply :
" DO NOT COMMENT ON OUR PAGE AGAIN "!
Now i realise that there is a time difference beetween Oz and the UK , but i am in the house due to the pouring rain on a cold Saturday arvo in Austria , whilst the Facebook Page monitor is presumably at home on a Saturday night , perhaps looking for a " dispute "! It sappears from reading the latest refresh that he has a stouch going with some one else currently , but ALL sign of these items have disappeared . As i keep copy of everything i post , it matters not !
Over the years of watching SCA , i seem to recall a bunch of other " Cycling Safety Org.s " getting the rough edge of his digits . In the past i was happy to assist since Europe is a 1 1/2M Safe Pass area , but when i pass through Queensland , i doubt i will bother with a visit .
UNTIL ALL Cycling Safety Org.s in ALL parts of the World , work together on a COMMON AGENDA , we Cyclists will continue to be disregarded as of NO ACCOUNT ! I can understand that the Pro Cyclists , when at a race , fail to do more for their Cycling Fans , BUT , since members of THEIR Profession are regularly reported as VICTIMS , they have to convince the Media to assist in their SAFETY on the roads , wherever THEY LIVE !
Enjoy the pics , these are just a few that support my efforts !
