20mph plan?

ON the occasion of the Tour de France visit to York, will City of York Council be imposing a 20mph blanket speed limit on the cyclists in the same way they are planning forcing this on motorists?

Perhaps it is far more likely that, given the anti-motorist stance of this and previous councils, it will only be motorists who will have to adhere to speed limits, traffic signs, traffic signals, driving with due care and attention, and so forth.

More likely there will be a rolling road block along the outbound route, plus a short term block at the starting point. The details will be managed bby CoYC's Events Safety Group, which includes emergency services representation. No need for sarcasm.

Stupidest and most pedantic too !

Perhaps the motorcycle races at Oliver's Mount should be subject to the 30mph speed limit round there too, by the good Doctors thinking !

I think the good Doc is referring to the masses of Wannabe Wiggins that will be descending onto the roads.

Many years ago as a schoolboy I fitted a speedo to my push bike and regularly achieved 40 down Holgate Hill. Too fast with hindsight, but I will be asleep at the wheel when it becomes a 20.

I think he is meaning what will happen on a day to day basis to those who cycle above 20mph. I know I do quite often.

Does he also write grudgingly to the local paper in Monaco about noisy racing cars exceeding the speed limit in the Grand Prix?

Local papers seem to be becoming repositories of negative misery...come on Press, rise above this sort of stuff and increase the quality of letters chosen for publication. I know this sort of letter is the trype of thing putting people off The Press...especially young people.
