After decades of female cyclists habitually hugging the kerb as if they were magnatically glued to it, the first sighting in Britain of one cycling in the middle of the road has been brought to our attention. The dare-devil feat occured on the park lane approach to the hyde park corner roundabout with the un-named female filtering through a rush-hour traffic jam slap bang in the middle of the road. Tuts and vigorous shaking of the head could be be heard from the ivory-towers of the helmet-wearing, shinpad-clad army of cyclists chained to the kerb behind her, supposedly too afraid to adjust their postion for fear of instantly being mown down by an "mad" car driver. However, dare-devil female cyclist was to have the last laugh: she reportedly arrived home in her usual half-hour while the cyclists kitted up in enough safety gear to make an ice-hockey goalie look ill-prepared, remained stuck in the traffic for another hour, too afraid to deviate from their safety haven, the kerb. And there they commited to stay, all in the name of "safety." Ironically, for all their speed, they may as well been a car - an accusation they would have surely despised.

Call be a pedand but: "Magnetically glued"? Not sure I have come across magnetic glue before. And "shaking heads heard in ivory towers"? Shurly shome mishtake.
Apart for that...well shit really. But please don't give up.
