Cycle Race In A Cycling Banned Town Britan

A Four days of Britain cycle tour is going to held in Mansfield starting at September 3 and its already creating headlines in the news not due to the race but the town which is hosting the race. Mansfield district council which have imposed a ban on cycling use to ban people from cycling the move which was taken to stop some anti social activity.

Racers such as Mark cavendish and james gullen will be seen taken part in the Britain cycling tour the track of the race will go through Nottinghamshire market town what’s funny in the whole scenario is that if it was a normal day and if they ride the cycling in the same town this will be seen as breaking the law.

So this race is literally a illegal race but what more surprising is that the council which has banned the cycling is supported this race. The mayor Kate Allsop said the ban is for the safety of the pedestrian but that does’t mean they would not allow this race to happen because this will be shameful for the Mansfield council. There going to be 100 cyclist take part in the race.

Some Facts About The Ban

The cycling ban came at august 1 when some cyclist were been seen as speeding on the pedestrian area to tackle this problem MDC introduce PSPO which states that riding cycle in this area will be seen as criminal offence cycling group Cycling Uk has been critisised this move and said that if problem was due to few people who are cycling innappropiately they should take action on them banning cyling was not a option now such ban will affect those with disablity which for some reason can’t drive a cars use cycle as a means of transport. Cycling UK with there Cyling Defence Fund (CDC) are going to take legal battle against the council and challenge there stand on their cycling ban currently the group has also shown support toward six cyclist who are fighting legal war against the ban.

I also believe this should be lifted and it’s a 24 hours ban and fine can be from £100 as much as £1,000 the legislator also covers ban on spitting, smoking in children area and if you have a dog you need to carry a dog poo bag and carry poo of your dog if you are said so.
