In the past 12 months I have passed this spot just outside Enniskillen four times. And every single time I am amazed, incredulous at the sight. A nice wide cycle path ends abruptly. At a fence. Well, not quite. The cycle path turns into an unshared footpath and then dead ends at the fence. So, by law, the cyclist must dismount to cross the road and then continue in the company of cars, HGV and farm machinery towards Irvinestown or Kesh.
You never heard an engineer going, “and at this point the M62 stops, drivers must get out and push their cars down the farm track and continue driving on the bank of the Manchester Ship Canal.”
Why do cyclists have to put up with so much rubbish infrastructure?
