... am I alone in seeing folks not using perfectly good ones and thinking 'why?'.
Case in point, for those that know Brizzle, every day I drive the section of the ring road between M32/Jct1 and the MOD/UWE roundabout. There's a wide, separate, well maintained and well used cycle lane running parallel to the road.
The last few days, driving back towards the motorway, I've seen a fella riding on the road rather than the path. So, he's chosen to ride on a two lane dual carriageway, very busy with commuter traffic doing 50mph+, with a separate car share and bus lane merging in from the left, heading in to a four lane motorway junction roundabout that could at best be charitably described as chaotic, and not use the cycle lane at the side. Madness.
