I WAS recently driving my car on New Brighton seafront where there is a cycle lane, and to my surprise, encountered a group of four or five cyclists ... on the road, outside of the cycle lane.

The traffic had to slow down to overtake them, which took a while because they were riding two-abreast.

I couldn't believe it when I then started reading letters in the Globe from disgruntled cyclists who feel hard done by.

That wasn't the first time I have witnessed such ignorance from cyclists.

If they need to use their bikes on the roads, then they should all be more conscious of the dangers, and actually use the cycle lanes that are put there for them.
