SOME weeks ago Mary James tackled me about the high profile media case of the cyclist who killed a pedestrian while allegedly cycling on the pavement.After I replied advising that the evidence of pavement cycling had been discredited, Ms James queried the source of my information.
SOME weeks ago Mary James tackled me about the high profile media case of the cyclist who killed a pedestrian while allegedly cycling on the pavement.
After I replied advising that the evidence of pavement cycling had been discredited, Ms James queried the source of my information.
Despite the time lapse I wish to advise that my source is the Cyclists Touring Club (CTC).
I assure that neither the CTC, or I as one of it representatives, tell lies to defend errant cyclists. We accept that the cyclist was wrong but the verdict on whether he had been on the pavement was "no judgement."

The fact that every media report Ms James saw indicated that the cyclist had been on the pavement and made no mention of the pedestrians drunken loutish behaviour makes the point. The media was noisy before the case went to court but quiet afterwards.
