Promenade is for walking

MR Graham Wells (July 27) asserts it would be ‘much more preferable’ to allow cycling on the promenade. Preferable to whom? Not the families with small children who would be put at risk by crowds of cyclist who would certainly invade the pavements. Nor to those no longer agile enough to hop out of the way of these inconsiderate pests. The way to enjoy the promenade is to walk on it as intended. There must be 100 miles of road in Eastbourne for cyclists to use.
