Not my council, guvnor

Here we have Cllr Jon Rogers with his bicycle. Normally we'd denounce him for not having a helmet, hi-viz top or any kind of body armour.

Not today though. Here we have him pointing at a cyclists dismount sign on a bike/pedestrian route in S. Gloucs.

He is smirking. We think instead of being bemused by such signs, he should recognise the valuable contribution they make to bicycle and pedestrian safety on bike paths, and roll them out across the cycling area, possibly using the aforementioned cycling city funding to do so.

Any path that encourages people to cycle where pedestrians also walk will give cyclists unrealistic expectations about where they can cycle, that will only cause problems in the inner city.
