love the scooter , but not enough mirrors tho .
Nice machine hough, have you still got it I loved the scooters they are still a very popular bike with people today who have meetings and charity runs, there was some beautiful bikes in the film quadrophenia, thanks for sharing.
We used to have one similar, done a few runs up Rivington on a Sun, in our courting days 60s. Nice photo of your dad.
Just like too know who has the right of way on canal tow path should be signs to bikers to be more considerate to family's and people
Shannon - it seems bikers have the right of way... or at least they seem to think so. The waterways magazines have regular correspondence from people who are harassed or even knocked into by cyclists who know they can speed away from any consequences.
I've always been of the school when out on the bike on a towpath, slow down and a quick ping on the bike bell, make eye contact, everyone knows everyone else is there, space created, a quick ' thank you ' as you pass, everyone happy !! We once did Leeds to Wigan for a local charity, not a crossed word, even the roach pole brigade
A quick ping of a bell doesn't help if it's old hard of hearing person or a few children playing its not a cycle lane
If no eye contact established, treat as though they don't know you're there and if need be, dismount until your past them. I think the towpath is open to all non motor vehicle users, pedestrians, cyclists and people on horseback. I'd say pedestrians would have ultimate right of way as they were invented first :). That said, with a bit of common sense and manners, there's room for all.
Remember the slogan, Beta Geta lamberetta. I had one but cant remember where I bought it from.
