UK Psychotherapist labels cyclists ‘Narcissists’ on public roads

UK Psychotherapist and writer Lucy Beresford caused controversy by labelling cyclists ‘narcissists’ on a daytime TV show

She said “You need to recognise that you are not the only people on the road"

The TV show's host Jeremy Vine, who took up cycling to look after his health, threw his head on the table and laughed when Beresford shared her opinions.

“We should be giving cyclists medals. Cars kills thousands of people a year. We’ve got an obesity epidemic and we are here, feeling defensive about cyclists,” added Dan Snow, a TV presenter, “People in cars are isolated, they get depressed. We have a problem with mental health in commuting, we’ve got people in their little vehicles, getting fat, eating rubbish! Cars are a catastrophe,”

“You need to recognise that you are not the only people on the road.” Beresford continued, "It is about cyclist's sense on entitlement when cycling on the roads, and how they feel when they are on the road, nothing else matters.

The TV show's host Jeremy Vine went on to say "I started cycling when I was 45 because I was getting a bit larger and needed daily exericise and started cycling 15 miles a day. Changed my life. It was fantastic! But I find now that I'm in a group of people who are hated. I don't why were hated so much?"
