Cycling is great

Wirral Globe: Cycling is great Cycling is great

AS A motorist, bus – user and regular cyclist, I feel I must speak up for cyclists.

Yes, of course some behave irresponsibly, as do plenty of motorists and pedestrians.

I’m aged over 60 and cycling keeps me fit and gives me great pleasure.

I hope to save the NHS cash by keeping on my bike for as long as possible.

For your correspondent “MW”

to suggest it belongs in the Victorian age is laughable.

I manage to use roads and paths without inconveniencing others, and see hundreds of other cyclists doing the same thing.

Why do we have to be so inconsiderate that we can’t allow a bit of give and take, accept that not everyone likes the same transport options or the same leisure pursuits, and celebrate the diversity of people?

What a wonderful cyclist you are in that you don’t inconvenience pedestrians when you cycle on the pavements even though this is illegal and just like all the other cyclists who promote cycling not once have you pointed out the miles of cycle paths that go largely unused.

A cyclist need only pay for the bicycle they ride NO LICENCE or INSURANCE and NO TAX DISK (road fund licence as it was once known) yet they ride with impunity as there is little that can be done to bring those who break the law to justice as even if caught they only have to buy another bicycle to be back on the road sorry pavement and with so few police on patrol the chances of being caught are tiny.

Please carry on cycling but temper your riding with the knowledge of the Highway Code that you must have as a car driver and as for the idiots on bicycles there are more than you think and they are EVERY WARE.
