The Path Is There To Share

While cycling on a pedestrian footpath is illegal if you are over 12 years old in NSW, there are over 50km of shared pathways in the City of Sydney where cyclists and pedestrians can share a path.

Sure, 50km sounds like a lot of space. But compared to the hundreds of thousands of kilometers that are available for vehicles in NSW, it’s a pittance.

Cyclists are abused by motorists for being on the roads but legally aren’t allow to ride on the footpath, so how can they win?

For cyclists to feel safe, ride legally, and not be subject to verbal abuse and fist shaking by motorists,  better infrastructure is needed on our roads.
