WHAT an ungrateful lot the Soham cyclists are. When they nip in to the Co-op, they leave their bikes resting against the (once) black bar outside. Sometimes they leave them against the railings, sometimes against the windows and, occasionally, against the kids' ride. They never seem to use the nice new cycle frames near the door. Why not? Could it possibly be because the frames, as they have been installed on a slope, will immediately cause their bike to roll into the traffic? If the council is kind enough to install cycle frames the least we could do is use them. If it means we have to stand and hold our bikes so that they don't run into the road, all well and good!
