Letter: Cyclists need to learn all the rules of the road


Here is some advice to Westsyde cyclists.

As so frequently occurs, I recently came close to hitting a cyclist on Westsyde Road, near Oak Hills.

The cyclist was riding his bike and dressed as if he were in the Tour de France, totally ignoring the posted signs designating the cement sidewalk on the west side of the road for pedestrians, and the paved path on the east side as a shared pathway for pedestrians and cyclists, whose access is guaranteed and advertised on signs along the route.

The cyclist’s swerving forced me to crowd the centre lane and, had there been a scrape of two vehicles caused by his being on the road instead of in his lawfully designated path, he would have disappeared, oblivious to his stupidity and its effect on others.

Cyclists, learn the rules.
