I'm glad the original article about the assaulted cyclist made it very clear he was a cyclist, and made it clear that the driver was convicted for attacking a cyclist.

Also kudos to the article for saying the cyclist was "driving his bike". But I'm not so happy that the article said the cyclist was driving "down the middle of the road" with no indication of what that means. Some readers might conclude the rider was blocking traffic and/or being rude and/or breaking the law.

I don't think there was a nefarious purpose to using "cyclist" but, OTOH, I agree with the letter writer that it obscures the human riding the bike.
