    That has nothing to do with bikes.

    Though if the cyclists were being inconsiderate anyway then that's not really on.

    Anyone can be inconsiderate though. You don't have to be on a bike.

    The thing is its a cycle path and the impression from the article is that its for walkers. She says that Mountain Bikers should not be on pathways. Its a cycle path!!!!!!

    Also dogs like to run and would have still knocked her over even if the cycles were not there.
     
  5. Typical hack, she doesn't 'call for a ban' as the headline says because she is quoted as saying she 'doesn't mind families on slow pushbikes'.

    Meanwhile ten people died in RTCs today. Business as usual.

    It is a shared use path

    There's always been tension on the Chase with "cyclists v walkers". When I've been walking over the Chase, cyclists have generally been considerate. There are some that go hell for leather where it isn't appropriate to.

    The common feature here is the pedestrians.

    Ban 'em!

    How about ban all dog walking cyclists who are unable to control their dogs whilst cycling, not ban cyclists from a cyclepath.

    This is primarily a dog walking problem, and the call to ban cycling on it is a bit nimbyish, it doesn't make any sense to me where she is coming from.
