When I see a cyclist on the pavement I have no objection whatsoever.
I have seen others who take exception and who feel its their 'duty' to give out - I am disgusted by this outward exhibition of sheer prejudice, its a bit sickening.
Our community has been built on tolerance and a 'live and let live' policy. Complaining about cyclists on the pavement truly shows their (newly arrived) colours. I do hope they dont complain when they in turn are faced with intolerance.
What goes around, comes around.

Replace "cyclist" with the appropriate term for the user of any other vehicle, and your view might change?
