Cycling on the Footpath?

    Something that bothers me a bit.

    Just today a grown man was cycling behind me on the footpath and was ringing his bell to get me move out of his way.

    this is from Citizen's information: (basically it's illegal but you can't be fined for it)

    Is it legal to cycle on a footpath?

    Since 2015 the laws governing cycling have been regulated into specific fixed charge offences. Gardaí have the power to stop and fine a cyclist if they commit a fixed charge offence. Cycling on a footpath is not a fixed charge offence. However other laws do include it as an offence.

    What is the AH opinion on this? Is it something that pedestrians should tolerate as it's for the "greater good" or should you clothes-line footpath cyclists off the bike?
