I FIND it hard to grasp the mentality of the occasional mature aged male cyclists who use the pedestrian footpath along the A556 at Davenham.

There is a perfectly good cycle-path provided for them allowing a four foot wide buffer zone of grass on either side to keep them safe from the road.

It also keeps them well away from any legitimate users of the footpath.

Stupid, mentally confused or just plain selfish?
