Closing down discussion on this now, please, and on the Cargo

Paul I am 79 on Thursday and can not cycle as in isolation
for the next fortnight. My E bike is essential to my life.
At least I give my proper name.
don't know moyelbushra but I'm with Mick Farrant on
polite post suggested that we cyclist will not win
support if we make selfish strident demands such as
replacement of a parking space with a dedicated cargo
bike space "right outside their home".
rude to a 78 year-old lifelong cyclist was unwarranted.

I have cycled in London almost every day since
1976 when I was 34 and been a member of CCC for
many years. I am by no means anti cycling but
think I have a right to make my views known .I
have never posted anything about cycling on Next
Door. If you as a member of CC have the support
of this organisation I will cancel my membership
Mike, but I am calling you out as, very clearly,
an out & out troll. All you are doing is
spouting the exact same anti-cyclist trash you
see on NextDoor all the time. They all begin
with "I've been a cyclist for xxx number of
years" (meaning I learnt to ride a bike when I
was 7 & have never done so in my adult life
since), they then invariably go on to "yes, of
course we want to save the planet, but what
about all the disabled people etc who really
'need' a car?" (what percentage of people might
that actually be, I wonder), before the
inevitable "I nearly got / saw someone nearly
getting, run over by some rabid cyclists jumping
lights / cycling on the pavement". It's exactly
the same nonsense. This is meant to be a forum
for people who are interested in actively
campaigning FOR cycling. All you are interested
in is sowing disharmony, arguing with people,
& pushing your anti-cycling claptrap.
