Unless it is in front of a car then you would be in trouble. Education is what is needed. If taught at school from an early age then that might help.

The car has to be insured, the only way to get insurance is to prove you have a licence, if you don't like what I say don't answer, obviously anything I say you will go into contradictory mode for which is shame on you not me.

I have never been asked for proof of my driving licence when applying for insurance ... just the usual questions Full/Provisional/Points, etc.

Mind you, if you are driving without licence, any claims to your insurance company will become invalid.

I do this about once a fortnight. So much so, in fact, that most of the clowns who ride on the pavement around Wapping & Shadwell (here in the East End) know my face by now and go back on to the road when they see me.

They know they have no legal comeback when they come off their bikes on the pavement and hit the cobbles. All it needs is the guts to stand up to them..the more people that are prepared to do it then the sooner this nonsense comes to an end.

Re: Isn't It Time Cyclists re-claimed the road?

I broke down in Bury yesterday, on the main road into the centre - in the bus lane side.

Well not entirely broke down - but there was steam coming from the engine compartment and we wanted to investigate why.
So rather than become an obstruction I pulled into a little used junction/entrance to a building.
Then thinking better of it pulled onto the extra wide pavement so I could work on the engine.
There was still room for a pram to get down the side.

WHile I was undoing spark plugs & my wife was handing something to me a cyclist came
up behind us and asked to get by, my wife was taken by surprise & stood back further in his way (no horn etc).

He slipped on his pedal & started swearing, aslo muttering about being parked on the pavement.

So she told him to FO DH... he should not have been cycling on the pavement in the first place
as there is a bus & cyclist lane on that road.


I told him that we were not parked - we were broken down.

There was no need for the abuse, so in some ways I can agree with Jaysay.

However I'm sure that he will now twist what I said to his own means

Did she learn that ladylike phrase from you or did you marry above yourself?

No need for abuse? You are quite right, did you wash her mouth out with soap and water when you got her home?

Only if you keep coming back on site, he likes the easier targets and you seem to volunteer for the job.

i ride lots of off road routes around hyndburn and haven't seen many "proper cyclists" on the pavements. although i find most dog walkers ignorant ****es who think there dogs can just chase bikes because "there just playing"

Well add teens on bicycles riding the path while on a mobile now. The little pest didnt see me on the pavement. He was to busy grunting down his phone. Why is there never a stick for the front wheel handy when you need one.
