Loud cyclists a bother on rural road

Duncan – We have lived along a lovely rural road for more than 20 years. Other than untrained, barking dogs it has been a beautiful, once-quiet place to make our home.

I do have one small bone to pick with the assortment of cyclists along the road. I admire your dedication to fitness but could I ask one small favour? Could you please remove your helmets, get off your bikes and have your conversations then? The untrained, barking dogs are irritation enough, add to that cyclists SHRIEKING at each other as they ride past! A little common courtesy would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
