Central Road Cyclo-paths


A week ago I was a victim of what seems to be an increasing problem in Central Road - that of adult cyclists riding at speed along the pavement. While I was not hit, it was a little close for comfort, and the footpath was fairly busy, meaning anyone of the pedestrians going about their daily business could have been hurt.

Luckily I had my camera at the ready and managed to snap the above picture before it was too late.

Coincidentally I was looking through the letters page on the Sutton Guardian website earlier today and saw a letter from a concerned Worcester Park Shopper who was nearly knocked over by "6 youths aged about 18 years old, absolutely speeding down the pavement weaving in and out of pedestrians" as they rode down towards the Midas Touch pub and round the corner out of sight.

Do you think this is becoming a big problem in the area? And does anyone know who it as that I managed to snap last week?
