Danger: cyclists on pavement

05 January, 2018

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

The other morning someone sped past me on the pavement on a bicycle. That afternoon I was walking home 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 incident left me very shaken. Cycling on the pavements at such fast speed should not be allowed.
