Cyclists remember, we are the many…

14 February, 2020

• CYCLISTS please note… for every one of you there are 17 of us.

We are the old, the infirm, the children, the babies, the fearful, the physically challenged, the untutored, the poor, the laden, our carers and essential travelling companions, and any combination of these.

So should you think you have an inalienable right to drive your cycle paths over our bus lanes, litter our walkways with your cycles, ride at us on pavements and canal paths, insist on the public purse subsidising you, strong-arm the planning process and drown out the voices of the vulnerable… Then please remember us.

We are the 17 just trying to get along in what you clearly see as your world.

Thank you.
