Town cyclists generate regular complaints

'Cycling and skating through town goes against Byelaws' - Douglas Town Centre

Complaints have been made about cyclists riding through town, particularly down Strand Street and Duke Street.

Douglas Town Centre Manager Oliver Cheshire has taken to social media to clarify that cycling and skating through the main shopping streets goes against General Byelaws, deeming it to be irresponsible and putting pedestrians at risk.

Following talks with the police, the council says Strand Street, Duke Street and Castle Street are designated 'no vehicle access' outside of loading hours, including bikes and skating.

Cyclists are therefore being asked to dismount and walk with their bicycles when in these areas.
