you couldn't make it up
Started by: nyce horse (3381) Report abuse
Walking to the game last night I was admiring the beautiful black tarmac and the custom built lay by at the top of Matheson Drive specially for our cycling friends.
Suddenly one of them appears, ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE ROAD ON THE FOOTPATH! More thousands of ratepayers hard earned cash slung down the drain by this barmpot council.

Curious to know why it's the council's fault if a cyclist chooses not to use a cyclepath

How many cyclists do use it Hossy?.......or don't you know?

Posted by: spacebar (481) Report abuse
...and so long as cyclists are less of a worry to me by being on their own paths while Iím driving, I welcome the initiative from the Council to make the roads of Wigan safer!

Nyce horse did you once get sacked from the council and that's why you are bitter.

Posted by: Stardelta (6331) Report abuse
I don't know how many use the various cycle paths/lanes around town. However I do know people say in the numerous surveys that are carried out that they would be more inclined to use pushbikes if they felt the roads were safer and more provision was made for cyclists. This applies particularly to the parents of young children. On that basis the way I see it the government and the council are simply giving people what it is they are asking for.

True this approach doesn't suit everyone's agenda but as far as some in here are concerned, not much does

more inclined to use pushbikes if the roads are safer,laughable.half the populace would drive two hundred yards to the shops than walk or cycle.
the mega dumb cycle path on robin park road springs to mind ,some council employee with a white hard hat telling the public sorry for any inconvinence ,when did WMBC give a flying cluck for the public.i have a better idea for robin park road ,make it a dual carriage way.

Posted by: mindar (761) Report abuse
Well you see there is method in this madness. Get people to cycle everywhere instead of using a car, give them cycle lanes etc keeps the body/heart fit. Less pressure on the NHS.

Posted by: tomplum (4760)  Report abuse
yes mindar and I'm starting a campaign to get people back to using push irons to enjoy life

reasons to ride a push iron

Posted by: baker boy (13987) Report abuse
mindar old fogies on pushbikes will fill up the a and e dept quicker than any over weight heart failure.half of em will have a heart attack and the other half will come in with broken collar bones from falling off their new toys.

There's nothing like getting out in the country on a bike,beautiful smells
from fields trees etc,I still have mine and will never get rid of it even though
the area where I live is all ups and downs and I haven't the puff for it now,
how I'd love to live somewhere flat so I could get on it again...my lovely
pink purple and white bike...Id give anything for it to be electric.

Posted by: mortarmillbill (399) Report abuse
Momac

There are kits available to convert your existing bike to electric.

Posted by: momac (9046)  Report abuse
Mortarmillbill thank you but it does depend on the price,however I will have
a toot on Google.

Damn right you could Hoss.!It would do you the power of good old son.

You should try it some time

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (2709) Report abuse
That bicycle is no longer a bicycle, it is a motor bike and as such should be taxed, insured etc for it to be used on public roads ...

Posted by: priscus (6505) Report abuse
Yes, TTS. It would have to be.

However, I have only ever seen him ride it on the pavement (footpath), and although that too is not legal, cyclist know that they can get away with it, and that neither the police nor local authority will take any action against them.

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (2709) Report abuse
That depends which Bobby see's him doo it, some are more zealous than others

In the 1970's we knew a police dog bobby and on his way out of the police station, to go out on his shift, he would growl to the other bobbins and say, my dog is going to have a bite tonight

Posted by: priscus (6505) Report abuse
Oddly enough, the person offering this bike for sale on Gumtree lives about 500 yards from me. He is only about five or six doors down from the local police station. They clearly pose no deterrent.

If they don't use the ones already there, what makes the council think they'll use the new ones????????
