Cyclists are not pedestrians

There seems to be an almost universal misapprehension under which the cyclists of Belfast are labouring, that they have the right to cycle on the pavement.

This is not the case. A bicycle is a VEHICLE and as such it should no more be whizzing along the pavement narrowly missing those on foot, than should a car or indeed one of these increasingly rapid and huge mobility buggies.

In the meantime may I urge pedestrians who are using the pavement as of right, to harangue and perhaps even stick an umbrella in the spokes of these idiots who do not understand that if they can't cycle on the road the shouldn't be cycling at all.
