Sitting Pretty

Post by MellowYellow »

Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

What are the designated bike parking spaces like, and are there enough of them?

The problem area is the coned-off bit by the food huts for people to buy and eat haute cuisine.

The 1st stage problem area I've shown in red - this is when mildly busy, like a good hot weekend.
2nd stage I've shown in yellow - this is mad busy, like the first good weather bank holiday.

If it's like either I just ride on by now.
But I was there today (about 15:00), and there were plenty of spaces to park so I stopped to have a rest and a burger.
The bike spaces were about 50% taken.

Simples - do not go to West Bay when it might be busy. There are other places.

Read the comments, it would seem that bikers contribute nothing to local economy.
They are fat, hairy and noisy.
Their bikes are noisy.
They cause trouble.
They scare off tourists.
They are disrespectful.

Such nasty, nasty, tea and cake consumers.

Ask the ladies point of view in Cherries ice cream parlour and cafe, I should think they are grateful for the queue of customers (which includes bikers) on a Sunday morning for breakfast.
Great breakfast - not cheap but good quality ingredients.
