Cyclist danger

PUBLISHED: 11:12 16 September 2011

I totally agree with Margaret Jupp's comments in your September 1 issue.

I live on the Salterton Road and recently almost got knocked over as my wife and I walked out on to the pavement. A young mother and her two children were cycling toward us, at quite a speed, and almost ran straight into us.

I heard the mother call to her children “Don’t go into the road”, with little regard for pedestrians.

I dread to think what might have happened if I had been leaving my driveway by car directly onto the path.

Cycling on non-cycle paths is against the law, as is clearly stated in all Highway Code books, and should be adhered to.

These cyclists are a nuisance and could cause a serious injury, or even worse, both to pedestrians and cyclists.
