Get a new bike from $50 per week

Not Cyclists again! (and boot camps)

By Kim F 14 February 2013 28

Nope! Well. it has been a day without a new cycling related thread!

How about those masses of Boot Camp joggers on the cycle paths!

I like to go for an early morning ride arounds the lake, armed with my hooter and bell of course.

Of late, there have beem teeming masses of joggers, jogging in a group 3-4 abreast who get quite indignant that they should consider moving over and actually share the path.

I tips me lid to them for their endeavours but there are a few arrogant wankers amongst them!


What’s Your opinion?

Read the OP comments, KimF is not complaining about walkers but about the jogging Bootcampers hogging the path.

I can fix that.

I’ve been lucky not to collide with a powerwalker and a runner who, on separate occasions, reached their secret spot and made a U turn with absolutely no warning what so ever.

That happened once to me too. I don’t know who was more startled.

Yes, we must stamp out this blight on our society! How dare people try to get/stay healthy in a park at 6am!.

using your reasoning we should allow subway sandwiches to set up shop wherever they like

You’ll have to flesh out that connection a bit more for me. I don’t quite see how a group of people doing sit-ups and jogging equates to a franchise in a commercial building. It’s probably obvious but I didn’t get much sleep last night…

The personal trainers expropriating the commons for their businesses is becoming a bigger problem.

That is a long-running issue. see this article from 2004

Oh, now we have cyclists complaining that walkers are hogging the path. Reminds me of a time when I had to slow down for riders hogging the road…
