      'An ignorant cyclists' reminds me of the joke 'What's the difference between a duck'.

      And yes, some cyclists are either thick or unkind much like motor car drivers.
      If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice......

      That cyclepath ran over budget at a cost of nearly 2 million pounds and
      It's hardly ever used.

      If a cycle lane is provided shouldn't it be an offense to ride on the road and not in the lane.

      Perhaps the cycle lane is unkempt, littered with brambles and broken glass, and a danger to all, despite the enormous expense. Like Madonna's growler, perhaps (to theme with the topical music thread)

      So, without wanting to upset @Stat Brother this is something that bugs me. I agree that there should be investment in cycle paths and the one on the A259 should be a very useful addition to the network. However, there are still a number of cyclists who don't use the cycle paths provided which will only then help those who argue that they are a waste of money.

      I travel up the A273 most days and most days there will be someone stretching some lycra to its limits while weaving up the hill from Pyecombe at a pace which would embarrass an arthritic snail causing a huge tailback of traffic. There is an alternative route which takes out the hill but they don't bother with that. Then, once you get to Hassocks there is a cycle path from the edge of Hassocks to Burgess Hill but yet again, most decide that this isn't for them so continue to cause delays for the traffic.

      Maybe there needs to be some legislation that forces cyclists to use cycle paths where the have been provided. This would not only stop these argument but also help the cycling community to lobby for more cycle paths to benefit both sides.
