Through roads are being blocked with This mechanic does not fix stupid shirt. When returning from the hospital one route through the city has been blocked by a pedestrianised area and two others by bus/taxi only roads. One end of our road has been closed so we have to drive in a circle to get home. If any more roads are closed or narrowed by cycle lanes we won’t be able to get home at all. All you’re doing is pushing the same number of cars onto fewer roads. People aren’t going to give up the convenience of cars especially in a climate like ours. Cycling is great for those who are fit, but some of us aren’t, and even fit people will baulk at a long ride home in the rain after a tiring day at work.
I discovered cycling in This mechanic does not fix stupid shirt to be personally better than any other form of transport about 17 years ago and really enjoy quiet spacious cycle lanes all to myself, since Lockdown I’ve noticed more cyclists and many of them don’t even obey the highway code of riding on the left hand side never mind riding on pedestrian pavements like they own it! Bikes are also the transport of choice for youngsters getting up to mischief and even more hardened criminals avoiding the law. If cycling is to become more popular surely road tax, Insurance, Registration and Licencing should be applied.
