    No, only the one left on this forum who haven't gotten sufficiently jaded and cynical yet.

    Give it some mileage, and at most you'll ask about pointers on technique on how to simultaneously pick grit out of your elbows, untangle a leash from your bike and fend off wild swings from an irate pet owner.

    Along that route of Discovery, you'll also figure out why wheels with fairly high spoke counts are safer while riding through parks.

    Hahaha I have also written to my council



    Carmarthenshire Council

    Via email. 21st March 2017


    Dear Mr Walters,

    Re: DANGEROUS DOG LEADS.

    I would like the council to place serious consideration on the banning on extending dog leads on cycle paths.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukn...ion-after-becoming-entangled-in-dog-lead.html

    I and my son with learning difficulties and many many other tourists use cycle paths and yet more and more we are put in danger at speed by irresponsible dog owners with these dog leads that extend many many meters often right in front of cyclists.

    Please can you let me know what you already have in place to stop this or are planning.


    Yours sincerely,


    J S E Rundle

    Journalist and cyclist.

    Unleashed dogs can also be a problem. Last week one of my ride companions T-boned a loose dog with the dog's owner standing close by. The dog squealed and may have suffered some damage although it was up and walking right after the hit. My friend was able to unclip and stop without hitting the ground.

    Yep, gotta hate irresponsible dog owners! And those who don't pick up after they've pooped (the dog not the owner ;) )
