The ACLs at Corbridge rumble on mainly because some vehicle drivers have taken it upon themselves to drive down the middle of the road for some reason known only to themselves having never encountered cycle lanes before. They blame the cycle lanes for their driving (and lack of knowledge of the Highway Code?) and accuse them of being dangerous.
The fact is, it's the 9 or 10 parked cars across the ACL at the Corbridge end that are causing the danger as they force cyclists and vehicles into the centre of the road. Funny how one set of motorists seem to think they can't straddle an empty cycle lane and another set have no problem parking in it.
TVMTB loves mountain biking but we are also concerned for the safety of cyclists on the highway.
