Course I’m not over 60, and although I do walk on cobblestones every work day, usualy it is just for one minute while I cross onto the footpath. I’ll have to walk up and down a couple of times from now on. And the cars travel so slowly down that road I don’t really have to bother about getting in their way do I? The bikes may be more dangerous however.
