You claimed that no cyclist rides on the pavement for their safety. I gave an example where the cyclist did ride on the pavement as it was safer. I'm not sure what issue you're having with this.Being deliberately obtuse run in the family then, does it ?
Edit - just seen your edit.
Yep, I exercise lane discipline and would normally go on the roundabout. I decided not to tonight due to being later than usual and therefore in Friday rush hour when it had just stopped raining.RoofRat said:I regularly ride around a multi-lane 5 exit roundabout, 3 of which are dual carriageways, I maintain lane discipline...
Having considered things I reckoned the extra 30 seconds waiting at a pelican (possibly toucan) crossing was worth the reduction in risk of being splatted. Seeing a cyclist get hit by a car in the same place last year helped me come to that conclusion.
You call it pussyfooting around, I call it mitigating risk. It doesn't change the fact that some cyclists ride on the pavement as it is safer than being on the road in some situations.RoofRat said:All I can say is keep pussyfooting around, I'll keep exercising my right to ride where I'm allowed and keep other road users...honest !
