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


Thank Gods.

It isn't a viable means of travelling on pedestrian routes, if that's
what you mean.

And you may recall that a few days ago, the Highway Code was quoted -
the bit that says "Don't hang things from the handlebars".

If you have ever ridden a bike, you would know how to shop safely.

Forgot to mention, you could even order stuff and have it delivered!
I grant you there are people who are to stupid to realise options.

I used a giant rucksack for shopping and stored loads in it.

Read the Highway Code on the subject of affecting the balance of a bike.

At least some people - the more entertaining ones - as you suggest (and
may well practice - use the little trailer.

That would be even better because it would reduce the number of cycle
journeys. Good suggestion.

It's a wonder how I managed to cycle to and from work for 15 years.
I carried food, i-pod, camera, wallet, water and clothes without a bag.

You ought to have read the Highway Code, which advises against such things.

It's funny that you like citing that publication when you don't even
know what it says.

I assume you are referring to rule 66 of the Highway Code,and it says
nothing of your obtuse utterance!
However, if you got another version of your "Code" I would be pleased to
learn.


Rules for cyclists (59 to 82)
Rules for cyclists, including an overview, road junctions, roundabouts
and crossing the road.


These rules are in addition to those in the following sections, which
apply to all vehicles (except the motorway section). See also You and
your bicycle.

Overview (rules 59 to 71)
Rule 59
Clothing. You should wear

a cycle helmet which conforms to current regulations, is the correct
size and securely fastened
appropriate clothes for cycling. Avoid clothes which may get tangled in
the chain, or in a wheel or may obscure your lights
light-coloured or fluorescent clothing which helps other road users to
see you in daylight and poor light
reflective clothing and/or accessories (belt, arm or ankle bands) in the
dark.
Rule 59: Help yourself to be seen

Rule 59: Help yourself to be seen
Rule 60
At night your cycle MUST have white front and red rear lights lit. It
MUST also be fitted with a red rear reflector (and amber pedal
reflectors, if manufactured after 1/10/85). White front reflectors and
spoke reflectors will also help you to be seen. Flashing lights are
permitted but it is recommended that cyclists who are riding in areas
without street lighting use a steady front lamp.

Law RVLR regs 13, 18 & 24

Rule 61
Cycle Routes and Other Facilities. Use cycle routes, advanced stop
lines, cycle boxes and toucan crossings unless at the time it is unsafe
to do so. Use of these facilities is not compulsory and will depend on
your experience and skills, but they can make your journey safer.

Rule 62
Cycle Tracks. These are normally located away from the road, but may
occasionally be found alongside footpaths or pavements. Cyclists and
pedestrians may be segregated or they may share the same space
(unsegregated). When using segregated tracks you MUST keep to the side
intended for cyclists as the pedestrian side remains a pavement or
footpath. Take care when passing pedestrians, especially children, older
or disabled people, and allow them plenty of room. Always be prepared to
slow down and stop if necessary. Take care near road junctions as you
may have difficulty seeing other road users, who might not notice you.

Law HA 1835 sect 72

Rule 63
Cycle Lanes. These are marked by a white line (which may be broken)
along the carriageway (see Rule 140). When using a cycle lane, keep
within the lane when practicable. When leaving a cycle lane check before
pulling out that it is safe to do so and signal your intention clearly
to other road users. Use of cycle lanes is not compulsory and will
depend on your experience and skills, but they can make your journey safer.

Rule 64
You MUST NOT cycle on a pavement.

Laws HA 1835 sect 72 & R(S)A sect 129

Rule 65
Bus Lanes. Most bus lanes may be used by cyclists as indicated on signs.
Watch out for people getting on or off a bus. Be very careful when
overtaking a bus or leaving a bus lane as you will be entering a busier
traffic flow. Do not pass between the kerb and a bus when it is at a stop.

Rule 66
You should

keep both hands on the handlebars except when signalling or changing gear
keep both feet on the pedals
never ride more than two abreast, and ride in single file on narrow or
busy roads and when riding round bends
not ride close behind another vehicle
not carry anything which will affect your balance or may get tangled up
with your wheels or chain
be considerate of other road users, particularly blind and partially
sighted pedestrians. Let them know you are there when necessary, for
example, by ringing your bell if you have one. It is recommended that a
bell be fitted.
Rule 67
You should

look all around before moving away from the kerb, turning or
manoeuvring, to make sure it is safe to do so. Give a clear signal to
show other road users what you intend to do (see ‘Signals to other road
users’)
look well ahead for obstructions in the road, such as drains, pot-holes
and parked vehicles so that you do not have to swerve suddenly to avoid
them. Leave plenty of room when passing parked vehicles and watch out
for doors being opened or pedestrians stepping into your path
be aware of traffic coming up behind you
take extra care near road humps, narrowings and other traffic calming
features
take care when overtaking (see Rules 162 to 169).
Rule 68
You MUST NOT

carry a passenger unless your cycle has been built or adapted to carry one
hold onto a moving vehicle or trailer
ride in a dangerous, careless or inconsiderate manner
ride when under the influence of drink or drugs, including medicine.
Law RTA 1988 sects 24, 26, 28, 29 & 30 as amended by RTA 1991

Rule 69
You MUST obey all traffic signs and traffic light signals.

Laws RTA 1988 sect 36 & TSRGD reg 10(1)

Rule 70
When parking your cycle

find a conspicuous location where it can be seen by passers-by
use cycle stands or other cycle parking facilities wherever possible
do not leave it where it would cause an obstruction or hazard to other
road users
secure it well so that it will not fall over and become an obstruction
or hazard.
