SAFER OFF THE ROAD

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - UP FRONT -

My hus­band and I re­cently vis­ited Ade­laide and took our bi­cy­cles with us for some recre­ational cy­cling. We very much en­joyed the Tor­rens Lin­ear Park, where pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists both use the path­way. We also cy­cled along sub­ur­ban foot­paths, know­ing that it is against the law to do so in South Aus­tralia, but with­out mishap. We felt much safer than we would have if we had cy­cled along the road­ways, bike lanes notwith­stand­ing. I would like to sug­gest that South Aus­tralia change the law to make it le­gal for adults to cy­cle on foot­paths. Mered­ith Geyer Kingscote
