Is it really too much to ask that you do slow down,indicate and only go past them when it's safe to do so instead of being impatient and saving maybe ten seconds off your total journey time?
You missed the point didn't you?
I completely agree with what you say above but disagree with cyclists (horses) who cannot ride single file to eliminate the problems they can cause others with their selfishness.
Also...why would there be "walkers" in the road? Big no-no.

It's also a sensible strategy on winding country lanes. Some drivers get impatient and overtake too closely with bends approaching. By going two abreast, it restricts reckless drivers from overtaking and potentially having to move inwards to avoid oncoming traffic.
Some are simply oblivious and enjoy chatting while 20 cars are strung out behind them doing 15mph. Even tractors pull over to avoid impeding the flow of traffic.
I blame Wiggins.

The police did the right thing here. The cyclists clearly showed no common sense, given that they would have been aware that drivers were piling up behind them. The police stopped them for everyones safety, and to avoid further congestion.
Cyclists are becoming parasites on UK roads (and pavements) and show no consideration for anyone but themselves.
I have been hit by cyclists who unlawfully cycle on pavements. I have also seen them cycling no handed whist using mobile phones.
