Cycle Paths

You may laugh at cycle paths, but isn’t it about time that cyclists used the proper ones correctly.

Several times, in the last few years, I’ve been nearly mown down on the pavement by reckless cyclists. Often when there is a perfectly well laid-out and marked cycle path a few metres away. The worst area is around Great Portland Street in London, where the council spent a fortune laying out separate cycle lanes and cyclists still jump lights, go against the traffic and ride on the pavement. If you complain, then all you get is abuse.
