I once helped a pedestrian up after he got hit by a speeding (I say speeding as in going fast rather than exceeding the speed limit) cyclist who didn’t want to brake when he saw the pedestrian in the road. In fact, the cyclist rang his bell and shouted from some way off (plenty of time to stop) and the pedestrian was on the phone/oblivious to the cyclist. He was an elderly gentleman so might have just been confused or something.

Unfortunately my polite/kind act was while I was a pedestrian rather than while I was a cyclist. I seem to get consumed by some kind of cycle rage when I am on 2 wheels, so I’m probably just as bad as all the cyclists I rant about myself.
