Pavement is not a cycle path
I would like to ask Mr Thompson (Journal, December 19) where he got his facts from about the pedestrian who was killed?All the reports I saw stated that the cyclist was on the pavement.

All the reports I saw stated that the cyclist was on the pavement. Also, where is the evidence that the pedestrians were 'under the influence of alcohol' and bad-mouthed the cyclist, as I didn't see anything like that myself?
My own experience is that it is the cyclist who swears at me if I challenge them about being on the pavement.
I will repeat: the point is that the pavement is not for cycles, but pedestrians, and in response to his question I would prefer these cyclists to be on the road where they belong.
Of course it is just as bad for a lorry or car to injure anyone too, but in my experience these are not usually to be found on the pavement.
