Policemen on bicycles

What's happened to them? About ten years ago they were often to be seen riding two abreast on their, i think i'm right, Cannondale bikes. I haven't seen any coppers on bikes in this area for over a year.

Don't see police, but do see the occasional pcso in our area.

I saw some of the cycling paramedics at the Time Trials. I normally see policemen on their bikes - not on a daily basis but fairly regularly. (Most often was probably at pick up time at the school gates trying to stop the idiots stopping on the zig-zags and double yellows!) They are a friendly bunch that I occasionally chat to.

A few weeks ago, I saw two PSCO on their bikes riding two abreast on the pavement without helmets

(one of the above statements is made up)

I see two bicycle cops riding around the town centre sometimes, unfortunately they do not seem very confident on the road.

I normally see them at certain events such as fayres and farmers shows but never in general... rarely see any officers for that matter.
 
i saw one the other walking beside his bike. i don't see them often i must admit.

I occasionally see them in different places at different times of the day - the only pattern I've noticed is that it tends to be on the sunnier days but that's probably more to do with me than them. They're nearly always good for a smile or a nod in passing. There's something about a bobby on a bike that I find much more reassuring than a walking one.

They'd have been wearing helmets!

Most of the 'on the job' cyclists at my nick are PCSO's now, and it bugs the hell out of me whenever I see them as they are nearly always cycling on the pavement!

they're very much in evidence in our part of the world and we're fortunate to count a few as members of the club
