Seafront Cycle Lane

...is getting a lot of stick at the moment. An accident involving two cyclists apparently knocked off by an opening car door was reported in the Evening News, and Mike Hancock (a decent MP but not terribly cycling friendly) reportedly said he thought the cycle lane 'needed looking at'. Flik Drummond, the cycling tory candidate didn't say much, I suppose she was up against the very anti-cycling stance of the local Tory party. Alas much of the News's coverage seems to be reporting those who always thought that cycling on the prom was the best solution (it probably was), and of course if the seafront cycling lane fails, they will once again become the enemy, with the usual letter writing campaigns against shared space solutions...
