Legalise cycling on The Esplanade, Weymouth!

As of a few weeks ago, it has become an offence to cycle along the seafront on the Esplanade in Weymouth. For those of you who dont know the area well, The Esplanade is a large stretch of tarmac reaching from the Greenhill Gardens to the Pavilion to connect the beach to the road. The area is plenty big enough for cyclists and pedestrians as long as the cyclists ride responsibly. Personally, i would rather ride slowly on the esplanade the risk riding on one of the most dangerous roads in Weymouth. For this reason, i believe that either this rule should be abolished, or a cycle lane be placed along the esplanade to keep cyclists and pedestrians separate. In an age where we're being encouraged to leave the car at home, this is a completly unexeptable thing for the council to do.
