Letters: Cyclists in danger

Sooke Road bus driver feels cyclists are in danger at rush hour

I live in Colwood, but I drive the # 61 Sooke  bus daily Monday to Friday.

My concern is the 3700 block of Sooke Road to approx. the 17 Mile House, into Sooke and out of Sooke.

I cannot tell you the terror of coming around a corner, driving a double decker full of passengers and have one of these fools in your lane doing 20 km/h, or having an on-coming vehicle crossing the double solid line trying to avoid another another one of these fools in their lane.

I’m sure it will not be a cyclist that will be killed or injured but some poor motorist trying to avoid them.

I cannot believe that people are cycling along Sooke Road at rush hour. It would appear that their spandex has cut the flow of blood to the brain.
