Better to ban the cyclists

Down in the van to pick up some post from Monty. Since the DVLA provided a prepaid envelope with a note "place your no longer valid driving license in here" it's a lot trickier to drive round the city. Lots of the cycling activists complain about unlicensed, uninsured drivers, but they miss the point: once your license is taken away, your insurance becomes invalid, yet still you have to get around.

What is nice to see is that the Montpelier post office has a big sign: No Cycles in the Office. North Delivery office has a duty of care and safety to all customers.

There is one of those "front wheel mounts" over there in the distance, by the hedge, just past the three car parking spaces.
Anyone complaining about bias and unfairness has nothing to complain about. If we had our way the sign would say "No cyclists in the office"

It might be worth pointing out that of those three parking bays, one (straddled by the van in this pic) is an executive parking bay, indicated by a picture of a wheelchair. V handy for parking the Merc. Ner ner ner ner ner.

Does the ban only apply to cumbersomes or are Bromptons included?
