Also, most supermarkets have bike stands outside accessed by riding up to them through the car park.

To get to the shop.


A car-park isn't a highway.

I suppose you might call it a type of pavement though.

Have you ever seen a supermarket which didn't have a clearly-marked
pedestrian route from the entrance point to the shop doors?

No, me neither.

So what business would a cyclist have in the parts of the car-park
marked off for the parking of motor-vehicles?

But that's only one sort of car-park. What about municipal and similar
open-air car-parks not attached to a particular venue but instead
serving a town centre in general? Or multi-story "parking structures" as
some of our friends and relatives call them?

What legitimate business do either cyclists or non-car-occupant
pedestrians have in those?

Groan... "storey"...

I'm not sure cyclists have a right to a path when the land is private, even
if a shop owns it.

Drivers can now be banned fron shops for not wearing a mask.
They have no right to have access to the shop private property if they do not follow the rules.

It's ridiculous to suggest that a customer cannot use the car-park to
park a car. Whether the customer complies with the rules for personal
admission to the main premises is prhaps not as important as ome like to
"think".

They might only be there to fill the car with fuel. Or perhaps they're
waiting for a household member to emerge with the trolley-load of groceries.

I don't understand what you're suggesting.

(If they provide cycle stands, isn't it a fair expectation that they can
be accessed?)

Indeed - at Waitrose, I used to cycle through McDonalds and Waitrose's car parks to access the cycle stands outside their main doorway.

Nugent has trouble conceiving of cycling as a viable means of shopping
