Pavement is not the place for bikes

I WAS appalled the other morning when an adult cyclist on the pavement rang her bell at me to get past!

I am sick and tired of these people who think that they rule the roost over pedestrians walking!

If they do not know how to cycle properly on the road they should keep off the pavement.

Worst of all, however, are the teenage schoolkids, mainly from Cavendish School, flying across Whitley Bridge jumping from pavement to road and vice versa, causing danger and tempting injury for everyone including themselves.

I can understand parents with kids teaching them how to ride carefully but the pavement is not place for bikes – simple.
