Bicycles cause congestion

Down a stokes croft, a cyclist has stopped to talk to a pedestrian in a bike lane.

That means not only will any moving cyclists get in the way of our cars, nobody can park in that bit of the lane to nip into any of the shops.
Round the corner, there's a row of bicycles heading along Picton Street. How can anyone in a hurry get past all of them? Our reporter had to pull over and wait.

This is proof that bicycles cause congestion -and make parking worse. Yet do they realise this? No, they sit there, smugly, thinking they are helping the city, rather than hindering it.

Nip into the shops whilst parked on a double yellow. Right on, Mr. Pickles.
