Problem with the chain gang

LETTERS From Chris Everson, East Cowes:

I HEAR a lot of cyclists complaining (often with very good cause) that there are not enough cycle paths on the Island.

Why then, as I drive from East Cowes to Newport, do I have to weave around countless cyclists from the Racecourse, all along Fairlee Road into Newport?

The pavement along one side is designated a cycle lane for most of the way, yet I see very few cyclists actually using this and it’s always been a mystery to me.

I am sure there’s a good explanation, as otherwise it’s quite bizarre.

Perhaps a cyclist would care to enlighten me?
