It’s time to curb cyclists riding on pavements

15 December, 2017

• PAVEMENTS are becoming a danger to walk on these days.

The other morning someone sped past me on the pavement on a bike. That afternoon I was walking home along when suddenly a man on a bicycle passed me, nearly knocking me over.

As this was the second occurrence of the day I called out: “You nearly knocked me over. You should not even be cycling on the pavement.”

He suddenly stopped cycling, got off his bike, and started swearing at me and telling me not to start with him. I worried that he was going to hit me. This left me very shaken. Cycling on the pavements at speed should not be allowed and it is time something was done about it.
