Ride sen­si­bly on the cy­cle paths

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

CON­CERN has been shown re­cently re­gard­ing the num­ber of cy­clists struck by mo­torists, the em­pha­sis on mo­torists who should take more care to al­low room for their fel­low road users to ride in safety.

Not too many of us would dis­agree with that sen­ti­ment. How­ever, cy­clists too must pro­tect them­selves by ad­her­ing to some road rules and use cy­cle paths where pro­vided.

Re­cently, I was the driver of the third car slowly fol­low­ing a group of yel­low-shirted cy­clists rid­ing in line.

The two lead­ing ve­hi­cles es­caped to the right upon reach­ing a junc­tion, leav­ing me to ac­com­pany the cy­clists along the road ahead.

Then, to my shock, the lead­ing rid­ers sud­denly sig­nalled and rode across in front of me to ac­cess the cy­cle path ad­ja­cent to and on the right of the road.

Why en­dan­ger them­selves on the road when there is a per­fectly good cy­cle path all the way along that stretch of road? Name­an­dad­dress

sup­plied. the pas­sen­gers praise the res­i­dents of Al­bany, for their wel­come and friend­ship while the ship was in port for the day.

The pas­sen­gers I spoke to were all im­pressed with The Na­tional An­zac Cen­tre and all the other at­trac­tions Al­bany had to of­fer and felt they would make a re­turn visit.

It is great that some cruise ships are vis­it­ing West Aus­tralian ports and keep­ing our money in WA. It is more pleas­ing to know that the cruise ships are wel­come.

It was dis­ap­point­ing to read about the snag to gain­ing a spe­cial liquor li­cence for The Gar­ri­son fine dining restau­rant at The Na­tional An­zac Cen­tre. Subiaco jeweller Thomas Mei­hofer ne­go­ti­ated a $10,000 an­nual re­duc­tion in his lease.
