Artist's Description

John is a cyclist who was recently knocked from his bicycle and here he is seen making a one-man protest. Now I’m sure all of you have a lot of sympathy for John but I assure you that not all cyclists are super greenie paragons of virtue. Here are a few stories about not so considerate cyclists.

Earlier this year a cyclist deliberately cycled into a 16 year old girl, later she died of injuries sustained. In court the cyclist received a fine of GB£2,000. The cost of his bicycle was GB£4,500, British justice at it’s best. A few weeks ago I saw a cyclist attempt to ride into a goose, somehow, miraculously, the bird managed to avoid the cyclist. The cyclist then selected another goose that was standing next to me. For the goose’s sake I stood in front of it and the cyclist swerved away at the final moment. A week of too later I saw a similar incident where a cyclist rode straight towards a couple standing outside a shop. Again the cyclist swerved away but fell of his bicycle. Then just a few weeks ago a cyclist rode into me knocking me down and throwing me all the way across the seven foot wide pavement. Lying on my back he did not even bother to get off his bicycle. Nice people cyclists.

Shortly after posting this it occurred to me that John looks like the camp comedian Julian Clary.
