FOLLOWING a letter from one of your correspondents last week, I too have issues with cyclists on the pavement – the fact that they are there at all.

What they wear or display shouldn’t matter to pedestrians; the fact is that they do not belong on a pavement.

The number of times I have had to jump out of the way of one of these people careering up behind me is beyond a joke – and they are not all teenagers.

If you must cycle, then you belong on an authorised cycle path or a road, not on the pavement putting pedestrians’ safety at risk.

If you deem the road unsafe and have to use a pavement then do what the rest of us do and walk.
