Fast cyclists can cycle on the road - cycle paths are for safe cycling, not racing. As for no-one using the cycle path - I drove along there yesterday for the first time since the path was built - and noticed cyclists on it. Struck me that it was a rare UK example of doing the job properly, not just painting an ineffectual line along the edge of a road.


You obviously found the rare day they were there and not a day when a car breaks down (which now blocks the whole road) or when the walker had a suspected heart attack and the ambulance staff had to get the stretcher through the fence whilst their ambulance blocked the road or noticed the increased number of crashes on the roundabout since it was but it or the total mayhem when the stretch of M4 from 11 to 10 was shut and all motorway traffic had to use the now narrowed road.

And of course you ignored the perfectly good cycle route already provided through that area along the old road from before lower earley was built cutbush lane - it is directly the other side of the field and follows nearly the same route

The main Lycra Louts don't like the towpath, no red lights or traffic signage to ignore and unable to ride three or four abreast! rolleyes.gif

Cyclists are entitled to ride three or four abreast (not that I've ever seen more than two).

You need to read The Highway Code rule 66 newres.
(Does anyone ever read that document anymore once past the test? rolleyes.gif )

It's a good job cyclists know the rules even if I don't because I have never seen more more than two abreast.
