It's never the cyclist's fault, is it? :(

Eh? I certainly didn't say that. Checking my post, what I said was:
There was a third not-explicitly-stated rule of "don't be a jerk". I wish more road users followed that one. There's another post in my head about Stupid Behaviour I Observe On The Roads Every Day, but really, who wants to read it? We all see it often enough anyway.
No mention of motorists whatsoever there as far as I can see: "road users" includes cyclists too!

Every single day I see stupid and dangerous behaviour from motorists (cars, buses, taxis, whatever), cyclists, and pedestrians. I don't see many motorcyclists at all on my daily commute, otherwise I'm sure they'd do dumb things too. Perhaps I should make that post after all, to make it crystal clear that I'm not attributing all the stupidity to one group of road users.

As for the question about training: yes, the Oxford Cycle Workshop does adult cycle training. In Cambridge, the Council actually offer adult cycle training: http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/transport/safety/education/adult+cycle+training.htm.
