and all the decent folks who drive down and up Poolstock Lane in the right manner but, I've had to send my teams out to replace the dotted white lines with proper kerbs to protect us cyclists from motorists who wander over the white line endangering us,
avoid the road for a few months while this work is taking place,

I read earlier that some local council, I think it was Bournemouth, had told cyclists to use the wide road rather than the 7’ cycling lane alongside. Does that make sense to you? I think they want to use them as a method of slowing down traffic.

yes they ask us now to use the centre of the road, A traffic calming ploy, I'm not that brave, There are some on here that would run me down and use the " I never saw him officer " retort ,

In theory If I'm doing 20 MPH down Poolstock Lane, nothing should pass me anyway But, That is not how it works,

I don't think that I have ever managed 20 MPH on my pushbike.
