Cyclists endanger others on bridge
To the Editor:
On June 15, I was walking over the Lagoon Pond Bridge and was hit from behind by a bicycle. We both had on earphones. The man on the bike had a lot of things to say, mostly swearing.
Then again I am walking on the bridge on June 22. I took my earphones out of my ears, and bang was hit by another bike. Handlebars slammed my elbows and knocked me into a fence. As mad as I was, I asked him if he had read or seen the sign that says, "Please walk your bike over bridge." And to my surprise, his reply was "I'm not from here." Well, I said, when you get to the end there will be a police officer to ticket you. Of course I lied.
June 28, walking the bridge, I had to press myself up against the fence to let bike riders go by. Ten of them and not one was walking his bike.
So: my question is, do I continue to walk the bridge or the street? Which would be safest?
