Get out of way of de­signer hel­mets

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

It is un­for­tu­nate that the wannabe Tour de France rid­ers think that the bike lane in Vic­to­ria Park was de­signed just for them and their high rate of speed as men­tioned in Fri­day’s Guardian. Why can these self­ish in­di­vid­u­als not slow down and en­joy a leisurely ride through the park and let young fam­i­lies do the same with­out be­rat­ing them about be­ing in their way.

If they need their speed fix then Route 2 east from Char­lot­te­town to at least St Peters of­fers open high­way with safe wide paved shoul­ders for them to go as fast as they like.

The per­son who yelled and cussed at the young fam­ily should have slowed and greeted them as hu­man be­ings and per­haps asked the lit­tle girl how she was en­joy­ing her bike ride.

“But oh no, it’s all about me, I got my de­signer hel­met, sun­glasses and fancy coloured span­dex so the rest of you lesser in­di­vid­u­als get out of my way, this is my bike lane.”
