Danger cyclists

I am sick to death of nearly being mown down by cyclists riding at speed on the beach path at Budleigh Salterton.

Do they not realise that it is impossible to hear them approach from behind, so that they cause people to jump out of their skin?

There are signs stating “No cycling”, but they either cannot read or do not bother!

When suggesting to them that they should not be cycling along there, all I have got is verbal abuse. They seem to think they are above the law.

Would it not be possible to have “No Cycling” painted on the pavement at each end of the beach path as the cyclists obviously do not read the signs?

This might deter a few of them and make the beach path a slightly safer place to walk.
