Hi and hello everyone.
First of all, I want everyone to understand I have no gripe against cyclists.
However, locally there is a pedestrian/cycle path. The cyclists take delight in zooming past pedestrians as close and as fast as possible. So e weeks ago a cyclists ran into me, bruised my back, swore at me and accused me of " being all over the place". I asked why he did not warn me by using g his bell. Instead of replying g he rode off.
I have asked the local council to consider having demarcation lines one side for pedestrians, one side for cyclists. So far there has been no response.
What is youd view on this , I feel there will be more accidents, maybe even a fatality.
Car drivers have to give e cyclists a metre and a half passing room, how about the same for cyclists to give pedestrians?
Just out of interest, I was 69 last weekend, I have several health conditions including g a heart condition. I just want to have a short walk a couple of times a day without being scared of being the victim of an accident or being sworn at.
