Last week we suggested that bicycles should be banned from the main Montpelier through route, Picton Street-York Road-Fairlawn road, instead sent down Cobourg Road.
However, we no longer support this proposal.
Our research shows that there is no room for bicycles on this road, even on the pavement. Instead bicyclists should be forced to use the one-way Lower Cheltenham Road, when heading west, and St Andrews Road, when heading east. The uphill involved in the latter option will discourage them from cycling at all, we hope.
