Attitude of cyclists

Richard from Omokoroa

I am getting increasingly frustrated by the attitude of some cyclists. I have just got back from walking our dog along the Omokoroa beachfront path and was nearly run into by a number of speeding cyclists, certainly passing within 1 metre of me and not the recommended 2m social distancing. There are numerous signs along the footpath/cycleway asking cyclists to give way to pedestrians, so can all cyclists be more considerate (thanks to those that already are). Maybe consider listening to Jeremy Wells of Seven Sharp and stick to the roads considering there is so little traffic these days and leave the footpaths for pedestrians.

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed
