I'm a disabled cyclist from Swindon having lost an arm and having multiple injuries in a road crash back in the 70's. I cycle about 200 miles a week on my road bike and mountain bike, used to race with Swindon Road Club for 20 years, but now it's a keep fit cycling thing.

Cycling is the one thing that I can still do without aggravating past injuries and is very relaxing.

I use the local in-town cycle tracks to avoid traffic until I get to the outskirts of Swindon and get on the local roads or trails.

Personally I don't think there needs to be any conflict between pedestrians and cyclists if everyone is sensible and tolerant and careful. It only takes a shouted hello, please can I squeeze past and then a thank you by the cyclist, for everyone to use the same facilities and be aware of each others presence.
