A ban on cycling on the walkway along the Doha Corniche has failed to deter a number of people, particularly youth, who seem to be unaware of the restriction.

Signboards along the more than 6-km promenade warn people against cycling.
However, the errant cyclists cause considerable difficulties to walkers, including families who flock to the area.

These cyclists can be seen zipping past people who are out walking or jogging along the promenade.

With the summer at its peak, there has been a sharp rise in the number of joggers, especially late in the evening.

Many of the cyclists bring the bikes in their vehicles. There are also others who cycle to the Corniche from different areas of the city. Some of the cyclists can be seen carrying pillion riders.

"While some of the erring cyclists readily agree to obey the rules when explained about the ban in place and they take their cycles away, there are others who pay no heed to the pleas of the walkers," said a regular walker.

Residents who frequent Corniche for jogging or walking feel the authorities could provide the cyclists a proper path where they can ride. (Source)
