SIR - The diatribe about the Alban Way being a Cycle Path submitted anonymously by "cyclist" should not have been published as it is based on an incorrect assumption.
The Alban Way is described in all Herts CC documents as a "trail for cyclists and walkers" and goes on to say that it is part of the national cycle network, but nowhere is it said to be an inclusive "cycle path".
If the anonymous gentleman had lifted his nose from the handlebars he would have seen quite a few signs indicating a shared path for walkers and cyclists; it is only in Orient Close in St Albans where there is a clear designation of users with images of cycles and walkers painted on the ground, everywhere else it is deemed to be a free choice.
The path can in fact be quite daunting for many walkers, with many cyclists being very reluctant to give any warning of their silent approach, even when hurtling along attempting to reach Olympic speeds.
