Steve McQueen said: As a biker myself this is personally my pet hate.
‘In this instance there is absolutely no excuse for it.
‘I’ve even been passed from behind by people I’m riding with who think it’s ok.
‘Due to the much better visibility and manoeuvrability of a bike it can be tempting but a no go.’
Andy Webster said: ‘Absolute madness, the few giving the many a bad name.
‘Fiver-year ban required me thinks.’
Harry Palmer spoke about how dangerous the road is.
‘P.S. for anyone who doesn’t know the Via Gellia on a good day it is bad, at these speeds doing those manoeuvres it is death waiting to happen,’ he said.
The A5012 Via Gellia was classified as one of the most crash-prone roads in the country by the Road Safety Foundation because of its sharp bends and narrowness.
