Cyclists prefer the road with heavy traffic and footpath and not parallel separated path. Any week day there are many cyclists weaving through the traffic in Bourke Street and riding on the footpath; yet the new cycleway is largely unused. Bourke Street is dangerous for cyclists and for drivers because it has been narrowed to create the cycleway. If the cycleway is badly designed and in the wrong place, admit defeat and move it so that it can be used, otherwise get rid of the cycleway. What is the point of retaining a cycleway if bikers prefer the road & footpath? If the cycleway is to be retained, then cyclists should be forced to use it.
