Since they invariably run parallel with carriageways and only a few feet
away, it's surprising that anyone thinks they were "lost".

Some have been removed, such as those alongside the East Lancashire Road
(A580) when it was converted from single- to dual-carriageway. Others
have always been there and are plainly visible and usable. An example is
the A570 (which intersects with the A580), just north of St Helens:

/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sLtQjZjlc8pc3Slrp1F6oeg!2e0!7i1 3312!8i6656?hl=en

So you agree motorists should pay to replace the cycle routes they have stolen.

No, cyclists should pay. Cyclists sponge of motorists as they pay no road tax and no fuel duty.

Motorists pay no road tax

Yes they do. It's the thing that used to give you a circular whatsit in your windscreen. Call it by another name if you wish, but it's still road tax.


Call it what you like it's not road tax.


It's a tax, it pays for the roads, it's a road tax.


Technically it's '60% of the motorway maintenance budget tax', the rest of the motorway maintenance and all new motorways are paid for by high rate tax payers i.e. cyclists mainly.

Get your head out of your arse you demented ****wit psycholist.


Typical childish motorist response.

and fools duty is optional.

Only optional if you buy red diesel. Do you use red diesel on the road?


I don't put any fuel on the road, maybe you should clean up after yourself.


I have enough money to afford a motor vehicle.


So to most dolescum, maybe you should try getting a job.

You stick to your 18th century transport if you wish.


No thanks, I would rather cycle.

Thank you very much kind sir for that great accolade coming from YOU.
Now please ejaculate to me from YOU the further honour of being a weed,
a fungus, and the dregs of this earth.

It really is a very great compliment to be called a ****wit by YOU.
Especially by YOU.
And I have no ****ing interest in looking good in YOUR eyes.
After all I ride a ****ing bicycle.
And we all know what YOU think of bicyclists. You think they are the
****witted pits of humanity.
And because it is YOU who think that, that is an extremely great
compliment.
We must be doing something right.

I really feel complimented by that, because YOU said it.

Nobody in their right mind would use an inferior slower vehicle with less balance and more effort if they could afford a car.

Do you know what "a few miles from here" means? It's a simple enough sentence.
