Not too long ago it was a source of shame to cycle on the pavement once puberty struck.Got hit by as woman riding an electric bike on the pavement. She was ‘enjoying going fast cos I usually have my kid on the back. I was on my MTB about to join a cycle path. Result - fractured elbow. I’ve broken a few bones in my time but this one is the worst in terms of pain.
This country needs to sort out why grown adults don’t feel safe to ride bikes on the road ffs
It doesn't matter whether a particular pavement is explicitly mixed use; that mixed use is generally more prevalent makes using the pavement more acceptable.I get why it is that people don’t feel safe on the roads. As someone who cycles about 10,000 miles a year I understand. We need to make cycle travel normalised on roads with proper safety measures.
we don’t have much mixed use here so that’s not the reason she’s on the pavement
Sounds like you'd have good reason not to feel safe on the pavement, either.This country needs to sort out why grown adults don’t feel safe to ride bikes on the road ffs
Not if you’re in an area where there isn’t much/any mixed use pavement, it’s not like they are having to think whether it might be mixed use or why isn’t this mixed use cos they have little/no experience of mixed use. It’s more a case of people not riding in roads cos they don’t feel safe and therefore the unintended consequence is that no one feels safe on either the road of the pavement.It doesn't matter whether a particular pavement is explicitly mixed use; that mixed use is generally more prevalent makes using the pavement more acceptable.
Was it Sheila who analysed one of your poems and said you were racist?Wanked and came pure white.
