I’M getting rather fed up with being shouted at and told off for cycling on cycle paths and crossing at pedestrian/cycle crossings. Usually, as today, by people in cars!

The worst place for this is the cycle path that runs through Mudeford woods and crosses over Somerford road and continues along the pathway to the bridges, where it stops. The crossing quite clearly has an image of a person and a bike on it and there are blue cycle path signs both sides of the road. I would like to make people aware that there are cycle paths nowadays and to think before shouting at someone law-abiding. I’m middle aged and don’t cycle fast. I just want to be safe. These paths have been put in place to keep us safe. Is that so bad?

Maybe if the driver in question today got out of her car and occasionally walked or cycled, she may notice that some paths today are multipurpose.
