Men on cycles are a hazard

Men on cycles are a hazard

First published in Letters

I AM fed up of having to jump aside to avoid men cycling through the pedestrianised streets of Northwich and I am 77.

I saw a grown man cycling down the steps at Boots, another one carrying a child on his handlebars. Surely the ‘specials’ could police the town? ‘potius mori quam foedari’.

Good point. Nearly every time I visit Northwich I see someone riding through the pedestrianised area on a bike.

Some of them even post videos on YouTube and complain that there's too many obstacles for them to negotiate... >ahem

The specials are too busy to bother about errant cyclists.

The kettle has to be filled with water.

The pot warmed.

Tea added.

Wait for tea to brew.

Pour in milk, sugar etc.

A great many of these pavement - hogging cyclists are fat slobs who are too lazy to push their mounts as they make their hurried way to collect more burgers and chips to gorge.

Another particularly unpleasant sight is the lycra-clad oaf who imagines he is Bradley Wiggins as he puffs his way to the pub or to collect his benefit money.

The police seem to be quite tolerant of behavior of these numpties but one day there will be a serious accident and then they will be partly to blame for not enforcing the law, ie doing their job.

My pet hate is cyclists riding 2, 3 and sometimes 4 abreast on busy roads like the A49 - these national speed limit roads are still too fast for these cycling clubs. Why don't they ride in a line instead of causing a hazard because let's face it, if they get run over or 'spooked' by a motorist, it's always the motorists fault!
