Don't tell us to get on our bikes
JON Rogers, one of the candidates for Mayor says "A lot of cycling on pavements is done carefully." He himself rides on pavements. To me and many others these are words of someone with no common sense. Pavements are for pedestrians. Cyclists apparently can ride across zebra crossings and through traffic lights when they are red and they never get reprimanded by the police.
I came out of Mogfords Hardware shop in Westbury-on-Trym last Thursday afternoon with my handicapped daughter, Jane, straight into the path of a middle-aged cyclist who was on the pavement and had to swerve to avoid hitting us. He was not wearing a helmet and did not apologise for almost knocking us over. He cycled on down the pavement behind an elderly lady who was using two sticks. She was completely unaware of his existence. He was impatient to get past her and swerved from side to side until he managed to squeeze past and cycle over the zebra crossing. If he had knocked any of us over he would not have been fined.
Jon Rogers was given an award for being such a Green councillor because he rides his bicycle all over Bristol. We can't all get on a bicycle. He has quickly forgotten all the people in the Care Homes and the Day Centres who are unable to ride a bicycle.
He is standing for mayor but we need, We need a business man with common sense for our mayor not a councillor who tells us to get on our bikes.
