AS A cyclist, motorist, bus user and pedestrian, I have no particular axe to grind with any other road users.

However, I cannot understand why, when a perfectly good cycle path has been provided (at great cost to council taxpayers), cyclists insist on riding on the road. They not only cause holdups to other road users but also put their lives at greater risk. Surely if a cycle path has been provided, cyclists should be compelled to use it?
