Why are dog owners on cycle paths?? I suspect you mean "shared use path" which isn't an exclusive cycle path. The trouble with shared paths is there is never ending conflict - just like roads really. A petition for more cycleways would be more productive, but even then pedestrians would have priority - just like roads really.jeremy1 wrote:PLEASE can anyone tell me if any petitions have ever been done to BAN moron dog owners on cycle paths using those extending dog leads
However I was riding on a quiet road recently and near ran into an extending dog lead, because, to me, the light made it invisible even though I could see the dog and the woman. I only realised it was there when the woman called out.
We had a dog many years ago and we had an extending lead. The problem is not so much with the leads but people not understanding how to use them. It is possible to shorten them fairly rapidly, and many people don't seem to know how to. Of course if you were approaching without warning then you are also to blame as a moron cyclist - never ending conflict.
