Having not seen a copy of the Enfield Independent for some time, I was delighted to see someone had taken up the issue of cyclists riding on the pavement. It is an everyday sight in Enfield Town, people breaking the law, secure in the knowledge they are unlikely to see a police officer and, even if they do, she or he will do nothing about it.

Come to Bush Hill Park and you will see whole families, mum, dad and children arrogantly taking up the pavement even if the roads are clear. There is one man who regularly rides with his son up London Road, teaching him by example that the law doesn’t apply to him.

A friend of mine suffered months of pain culminating in a knee replacement after being struck by a cyclist on the pavement. This practice is selfish, dangerous and illegal.
