Let’s look at this from another perspective.
Birders and Photographers - have very likely spent several days or weekends scouting out the perfect location. The photographer may have driven many miles and waited for some time to capture that specific play of light on the water, while the birder may have responded to the call of the Lesser Spotted Titwort and spent half a day stalking his prey. Both men (used advisedly) could be just on the point of climax then ...along comes some great numpty on a bike sending all before him (again) diving for cover, crashing into the photographers beautifully set up frame and putting every feathered creature to flight.
Pheasants - have only been in the UK since Roman times so need time to acclimatise and adjust to the presence of cyclists.
Dogs, leashed and unleashed - give their owners much pleasure and, quite possibly, reduce the amount of domestic violence perpetrated by annoyed husbands whose team has just lost 0-3 to a bunch of dirty cheats ‘...and that bloody ref!’. Where would he be without a pit-bull cross to kick? I must say that this type of dog is unlikely to cause a cyclist much off road harm as it will be away worrying wildlife or sheep.
Children - You have a point.
Otters Crossing - Being a naturally shy creature the otter is likely to make itself scarce when it senses a cyclist roaring along the footpath scattering gravel, mud and ramblers in all directions.
Lovers - A tinkle of your bell could add atmosphere to the romantic idyll that these two are enjoying. They’ll step aside and wave you on your way with warm smiles. Always remember, without them where would any of us be?
Midges - have but brief lives. 30 days on the wing isn’t long to find your life’s love, settle down and have kids. It’s time to cut them some slack; maybe we should try to ride around or slalom though them?
Beautiful views - sorry , I misread this I thought it said beautiful wives.
Tea Shops - specifically with reference to the Lycra lobby. Do you know how long it takes to pack a beer gut into those leggings?
