Sitting here I am listening to the cyclists going by and is amazed at how fast they are going past. I then came across this write up from the 12th July on Narrowboat World. Maybe cyclists need to slow down, before some does actually die.
Whoever decided to make towpaths cycle routes needs to reconsider their decision. Because not only do the cyclists go ...to fast, they are also chewing up the towpaths, which will mean more work has to be done by BW. I read a sign the other day that cyclists should do no more than 10mph arghhhhhh that is way to fast.
I should say that I am a Cyclist myself, and I do try and behave in an appropriate way, when cycling on the towpaths. People forget that the towpaths are used not just by cyclists, but by walkers, fishermen and others, so please take time think of others, when your hammering down the towpath on you over priced bike.
