If there is a cycle way then they should not ride on the path. The local authority should consider which paths are suitable subject to a rule where pedestrians have the right of way but should not obstruct a cyclist unreasonably.lf there I room to pass. This way busy roads which have few pedestrians such as the A4 and A339 could allow cyclists on the path subject to the rule about pedestrians having first call when limited space demands they have priority. Conversely minor roads especially in areas where pedestrians numbers are high then cyclists should be prohibited from using the paths. To make this work paths should be clearly marked if they are subject pedestrian priority. The police should have power to consider if a cyclists is being reckless and endangering pedestrians and prosecute accordingly. I believe that vote will against the use of paths simply because a few are so selfish they cannot be trusted to share the path saftley. .

Anybody who cycles on the road deserves a medal my personal opinion is that you are completely mad ,I will only ride on cycleways that are part of the pavement as I value my life too much
Motorists do not care about cyclists enough,but we have cyclists who say we have the right to be on the road same as horse riders well you have the right to stick your hand over a gas cooker when lit but it burns and hurts ,same as being knocked over by a car ,your choice life or injury and possible death,use a bus and get fit in a gym its far more healthier
