Some of the contributors to this thread have looked for more rules for "shared use" than I believe there to be. In looking beyond the HC, I suppose I'm trying to prove a negative: ie there's not much more than "slow down and be prepared to stop."
As I'm sure you know, the term "vehicular cyclist" means a cyclist who acts only in ways that OTHER vehicles may also act - in the extreme, vehicularists avoid all cycle-specific lanes, roads and movements and oppose the existence of them on the ground or in law. I think this is based on a flawed belief that the law should apply the same to all road users or possibly that motorists will somehow behave better around us if we only use the spaces they can (which seems unfair, as we cannot use motorways).
It often appears to me as a form of name-calling.
... there are very few people now who welcome things like pavements-with-paint and I don't think they are involved in this discussion.
I might dub them farcilitators, had I not already coined the term highwaymen. (And yes, I think that's mine, although I can only guess at Pete Owens for "farcilities.") The main point is that such people provide the rubbish and wouldn't dream of sensible discussion about the results. The sad thing is that some cycle campaigners seem to see things like shared-use as a sort of stepping-stone or halfway house to the promised land. AFAIK, the bit I quoted from Cyclecraft is factually correct.
... I really don't understand why cyclists in Leeds are letting their councils get away with seems to be a parody of a superhighway.
I resigned from the role of CTC Right to Ride rep for Leeds a long time ago (December 1999) as I must have posted somewhere before. To give others a free run, I made a complete break and I've had no involvement since then. (Not totally correct: I represented the CTC at a futile public inquiry in June 2000.) Speaking in the most general terms, it takes more than a few cycle campaigners to swing Leeds City Council. I took them to the Local Government Omsbuddy.
Re the Superhighway in particular, I did attend a roadshow at a public library which was just across the road from where my mother was living. The poor chap doing the job came from NZ IIRC and knew nothing. The irony was that a part of the route passing within a few hundred yards of where we were talking included the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lane, where cyclists had been badly let down by the antics of the highway authority and this poor chap was out of his depth, especially with me hissing through clenched teeth.
In short, Nothing to do wiv me, guv.
I don't claim much success in the time I was an active campaigner, but I like to believe I made them think.
Here's a thread started by a Leeds cycling campaigner from after I had quit, raising the issue of the highway authority ignoring consultation.
