Bad dog owners are a danger to cyclists
2:28pm Tuesday 25th September 2012 in Letters
IN reply to the letter "Bikes are an accident waiting to happen" - other cyclists and I will not use the cycle lane from Derby Pool at Wallasey beach for three very good reasons.
1 We have been attacked by dogs who are running off the lead.
2 Dog-walkers who can't be bothered carrying their doggy bags to the next litter bin throw them from the lower path to the cycle lane.
3 There is a very low wall which borders the lane and if we had to swerve to avoid anything and go over it the outcome would I am sure will be fatal.
We have spoken to dog wardens who are aware of the situation and agree that the pathway and lane from Harrison drive to Meols are a disgrace.
Two of us who ride from Seacombe to West Kirby nearly every day have the scars were we have come off to prove we know what we’re talking about.
