Bring Back the LANES!

Since the weather is getting better (finger crossed) I decided to get my bike out and ride to work! It was about a 40 mins journey which wasn’t bad apart from the first 30 nerve-racking minutes…Guys if you think that you’re not respected as a car driver imagine what kinda respect you’d get as a BIKE rider!!! I swear at times I believe am invisible (unfortunately this feeling doesn’t come when you most need it 😦 ) … I tried to bike on the pathways but for the most part they’re non existent .. what happened to the 1.5 m path in front of the house law?! and why do some home owners block the pathwaysin front of their homes with bricks?!  The interlock work along the wider roads are mostly broken or sunk into the mud … I must admit that the last 10 mins was a joy ride but I think that it’s time that we acknowledge and encourage bike riders .. I hope our ‘beloved’ government bring back all the pathways in front of the houses (and unblocked) as well as creating lanes to the side of highways and wider roads …. but until then “where there is will there will ‘always’ be a way” … so get out your bikes and enjoy the ride.
