Ed Blackadder replied to Ian Cook's discussion Pavement Cycling
"Certain areas, around Kingston for example have a lot of mixed cyclist/pedestrian areas. I suspect this has led to cyclists to regard any pavement as a cycling area. There are certainly many cyclists who cycle on the pavement regardless. As much as…"
