They are stealing our parking places!

Just off St Michael's Hill, May time. All is well, and a car FP05KKY is happily parked where its wing mirrors are safe. The bollards on the pavement protect the wall from anyone parking too close.
And now look at it today. No parking space! It's been stolen by bicycle parking!
This is a Sunday lunchtime. These aren't commuters. They are either residents -probably students- or have nipped in to the White Bear to have a beer or two.

Either way, the cycling city campaign is taking pavement space away from us car drivers and given it to students or drunk cyclists. This is unacceptable.

Due to the economic downturn and the fact that fuel now costs £45 a squirt one of those bikes belongs to FP05KKY

Possibly -or it could be that the driver has suddenly decided to cycle in just because their favourite parking space went away. We shall have to keep an eye out for it.
