Solutions to shared paths
DIANE Darke's letter (Have Your Say, February 23) raising concern about irresponsible cyclists on shared paths makes me (as a hopefully responsible cyclist) wonder what can be done about it.
Personally, I have not witnessed the problems she describes and which made her decide not to walk on the foreshore path, but then a cyclist has a different perspective.
Following the incident of the dog injured on the Taff Trail, Cardiff Council have decided to offer training classes for cyclists at leisure centres starting in spring. Maybe Swansea Council should do something similar?
Meanwhile, could not the police take action?

Cycling in Holland last year I, a moderately paced cyclist, was startled by racing cyclists passing close by without warning. I soon learnt not to swerve, and after a while got used to them.
The same applies to pedestrians here. Don't jump when a cyclist passes close, but do leave enough space. So, Diane, get back on that path and enjoy!
