Idiots walking in the bike lane. 14:19 - May 13 with 3446 viewsHCMC

Just had a 90 minute walk between the Marina and Mumbles I could not believe how many idiots walk on the side allocated for bicycles walking 3 abreast and taking up the entire bicycle lane when no one is on the pedestrian side.

These people should not be allowed out alone with the danger they are causing I guarantee during the summer there will be many accidents,I saw about 4 close calls today these idiots will only have themselves to blame when they get smashed.

As a cyclist this doesn’t bother me. It’s essentially a shared space, as a white line down the middle of a narrow path isn’t going to segregate people when it’s busy. Cyclist go quicker - we have a duty of care to pedestrians and need to slow speeds when it’s busy and anticiate wandering pedestrians.

It’s why some cyclists go on Mumbles road rather than the path. Then car drivers have a duty of care to the cyclists. Same principle applies imo.

Do you use cycle lanes or do you prefer the outside lane on dual carriageways?

Lanes are for pussies. Wobbling across all 3 lanes on the M4 is my style!

The bottom line is that the halfwits walking in the bike lane will get hurt

Your subtle divergence from a well worn theme on here has obviously confused some. Cycle lanes seem a far more interesting thing to talk about than this match though.

The busiest stretch of the promenade is in Mumbles, and you take your life in your hands along there on a sunny day.

It's about 12ft wide and in that space you get pedestrians walking in both directions and cyclists, kids on scooters etc going both directions. Add to the mix in the summer there's the daft 'Noddy train'.

What other council would allow that, they're a bloody disgrace.

I'd agree with the op, there are a lot of people walking on the bike side of the path. I would also add though, that there are some moronic cyclists on that path too.

As a cyclist it grinds my gears when you see people with bikes worth thousands of pounds riding for their life on the path. What's the point? At those speeds it doesn't take much to cause an accident and with the amount of people drifting across the line I'm surprised we don't see more.

Perhaps it would be wise for a speed limit to be introduced on there. If you exceed it then go onto the road.

I apologise to you also.

It is indeed a trying time.

But I still think it’s not to much to ask for walkers
not wander all around the bike lane like zombies.

I walked from Blackpill to Mumbles last week and was amazed at the difference in size between pedestrian and bike lane.

It really only is common sense for th cyclists to keep a close eye out for people (considering the "lane" is no wider than 2/3 people) and similarly for pedestrians to keep an eye out for bikes

Clearly though the idiot cyclists who were in the walking lane last week riding like zombies would have ground your gears as well ;-)

If that last comment was aimed at me,then yes of course they would grind my gears!! I use the path generally for walks with Mrs CSF or if we're looking after our niece so I know what it's like having to look out for the idiot cyclists!

If I'm riding on it I'm usually with a mate and we're on the path because we are chatting which means we won't be going more than 10mph and that's normally fairly early when it's quite quiet.

It’s pure madness down there on a nice day, loads walking in what is a small lane, for walkers, then you get cyclists fully geared up for the Tour de France cycling along there like their lives depend on it, crazy individuals indeed.
I’ve used the path whilst cycling down to Mumbles, but when you get to say oystermouth l honestly think it’s safer for all to dismount it’s usually far to busy to cycle, all you need is a little in stepping out into your path and it’s a recipe for disaster IMO.

That path is not for serious cyclists merely Sunday cyclists .

Roads are dangerous for cyclists throughout the UK though

Not going to lie, I almost collapsed with shock. A self aware cyclist? I never thought they existed, although kind of ruined it with the last paragraph

Hypocritically hypocritical !

Yep, I agree, I’m not a serious cyclist, I hop on my bike to get from a to b, so I use the promenade. I’m usually on my way back and forward to work so I’m not exactly hurtling along. Likewise, I have no problem with serious cyclists using the road or the promenade and you can generally spot the folks who know what they’re doing in both cases.

My issues are with the folks who decide to cycle on the roads without a clue, and the people who use the prom with absolutely no awareness of others. Dog walkers who decide not to use a lead is a current gripe of mine. Families who walk 5 abreast and look put out if you need to get past, in general, I guess it’s a mixture of cyclists and pedestrians, with a complete lack of common sense being the common denominator.
