CYCLIST CAUSES 12 MILE TAILBACK BY CHATTING TO FRIEND
I want to stick his bike up his arse fumes motorist
A 12 mile tailback crippled the rural road network in Derbyshire this morning after a cyclist formed a rolling road block when he chose to ride alongside his friend so they could “have a chat”.
“I had a bit to get off my chest, there’s no disguising it,” said Toby from Matlock.
“I apologise to everyone who had their travel plans ruined or whose journey times doubled, but I’ve had a bad week at work and needed to talk it through with someone.”
Traffic was at a standstill on the A6 for much of the morning with Bakewell and Darley Dale effectively cut off as the two cyclists rode abreast at average speeds of 12 miles per hour.
“I know it’s a vital route for emergency vehicles, but in my defence we’ve had this situation where I’m being expected to answer emails at all hours and I’m not really comfortable with it, I think I might need to involve HR,” added Toby.
Frustrated motorist Kevin Smickle who was snared in the gridlock fumed, “Lidl was out of oven chips by the time I got there. I want to stick his bike up his arse.”
