It's a moot point now, but whilst the Council previously insisted that cycling was banned the police took a different view. They made it clear on a number of occasions that as far as they were concerned it was permitted.

Very supportive of this. It's exactly what some of us have been saying for many years.

Re: Cycling on the Promenade

Postby Mark Cameron » 25 Jul 2011, 13:21

I've holidayed in Austria a couple of times and have always been really impressed by how in tune they seem to be with cyclists. They easily cope with having cyclists and pedestrian using the same paths (where they don't have specific ones for each). For example on many a shared path they mark out lanes for cycling (both ways if room permits) and another for pedestrians. The cycle lanes have a picture of a bike painted in them every few metres. The fact that people can see there are specified lanes I think helps greatly.

I don't see why something like this wouldn't work on the Prom as it is plenty wide. As has been said above though it does need both pedestrains and cyclists to be considerate towards each other.

They might consider that! It's done on the Meadows, after all.

I should add that I don't know which lane to use on the Meadows so I trundle along the white line in the middle.

The only problem I've had using the Meadows lane is when I'm out at the same time as that baby buggy walking club, who walk six together, side by side across the entire path and bike lane too.

I'm not sure a split path would work, especially on the busy sections from, say, the fun park to the baths at least. I think cyclists (and I'm one, most days) just have to learn to adapt to the conditions. Slow right down, watch for kids, give way, and, ultimately, get off and walk when it's busy. The (slightly) less vulnerable cyclist should always give way to the more vulnerable peds.

Since the prom is now a core path my understanding is your legally obliged to behave 'responsibly', as defined by the terms of Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

I hope they put up up a sign saying that dog owners with 20 feet, almost invisible dog leads, will have to donate a week's wages to PPAG 8)
