Bandar Botanic, Klang - Racing Cyclists on Walking Path. Do you hate them or love them? Are racing bicycles allowed onto the walking path?
- by some residents of Bandar Botanic.
Some elderly ladies who said that racing bicycles are not for the path commented at some cyclists from Bukit Tinggi riding fast around a lake with a small walking path with their racing bicycles. However, there were no bicycles sign and this small group of cyclists’ enthusiasts was there for cycling exercise on the every morning of Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday, from 6.30am - 7.15am riding their bikes at top speed oblivious of the pedestrians walking there. There were dog walkers, walking couples, kids and their mom or dad. A couple of walkers recovering from partial strokes were also walking there very slowly.
Some say its okay as long as the cyclist’s enthusiasts are considerate. Some say as long as they aren’t trying to race around corners or whatever, its okay. However, to us residents that stink because there is not enough room already, and each time the cyclists fly by, the pedestrians have to go to the side. It is the responsibility of the cyclists to the pedestrians. The walking track is not a racing track.
Racing bicycles can be annoying. They take up more space and pedestrians are slow. Maybe there should be stricter laws prohibiting racers cyclists into pedestrian’s walkway
Note the angles which the bicycles are leaning - meaning they are cycling fast.
