It’s a big problem here too, walkers getting squished by cyclists and cyclists getting killed by cars.
We have shared pathways with a yellow line down them, expecting everyone to keep right. As a walker, I don’t like cyclists creeping up behind me, so I walk on the wrong side as long as there’s room to step off the path onto grass when an oncoming cycle appears. Or even a walker or jogger keeping to the right, since I am the one ‘in the wrong’. It keeps me safe and doesn’t bother anyone as I always give way.
If there’s no room on the left to step aside (other than jumping in the canal) then I go with the traffic. But it’s blooming alarming as the cyclists go fast. I don’t blame them unless they behave like louts, after all, they’re keeping cars off the roads, but cyclists and pedestrians don’t mix well but nor do cyclists and motorists.
