Girl, 4, breaks leg in collision with cyclist
I personally do not have an issue with cycling on the pavement - and at Southbourne Grove I can understand why someone would want to - it is a very busy stretch of road, but also very narrow, due to parked cars in some places it is only wide enough for 1 lane of traffic.
It is however, a busy high street with a lot of foot-fall too.
My personal stance is, if you must or prefer to cycle on the pavement - then you do so at a sedentary pace, if you want to cycle fast you should be in the road. End of.
As to the lack of lights, well I am afraid that is un-excusable.
