DON'T TARGET US MOUNTAIN BIKERS, GO CATCH THOSE EBIKES INSTEAD

A reader is against the requirement for mountain bikes to have handlebars shorter than 700mm. He thinks having a longer handlebar will provide more stability when cycling and would rather the LTA catch those errant ebikers instead. "Shouldnt LTA be educating pedestrian as well? Most pedestrian are hogging up the entire pavement, walking in all direction, and causing misunderstanding between cyclists and pedestrian. Not all cyclist are dangerous, most of the mountain bikers that ride the local trails respect the pedestrian and care for the safety. Do not let one reckless cyclist give you the idea that the whole cycling community is dangerous!"

LTA CONFISCATES BICYCLES PARKED ILLEGALLY

With the rise of the number of bicycle on the roads now that three rental bike companies are aggressively pushing their business out to the public, parking spaces for bikes will now become a premium. It is no surprise then that many bicycles are parked indiscriminately, and not at the lots created for the bicycles.

While the LTA are looking into this issue, where they are trying to create more bicycle docking stations, LTA are also taking action over those that parked their bicycles illegally. In the past week alone, 50 bicycles have been forcefully taken. The owners of the bicycle have to pay an admin fee to reclaim their bikes. Among places where the bikes were taken, are areas such as the bus stops, and walkways in housing estates.
