Fantastic short ride this evening the cold has a way of really waking you up and blowing away the cobwebs. Even the hairy moment when my back break decided to fail can’t take away the good feeling I have right now.
I have however realised that I really need a pair of winter gloves. 20 minutes ago I couldn’t have typed this post because my fingers were so cold!
Tomorrow…I have a break to fix!
It’s true, there are people out there who love cyclists!
Ok, so they love one cyclist in particular, but Mark Cavendish winning BBC Sports Personality of the Year is something of a victory for us cyclists especially when he mentions, not just his team mates and the professional cyclists he has the chance to compete against, but also the every day commuting and leisure cyclists.
What Cavendish has done this year is truly exceptional, but every cyclist in this land has something of him in them every time they get their bike out and cycle to work, cycle for fun or cycle in an event.
And my claim to fame as far as Cav goes…well at the Exeter stage of the Tour of Britain he ran over my foot with his bike trying to get through the crowd at the start line. He apologised as well. It’s not much but it’s my claim none the less
I choose to wear a helmet when cycling, but should it become compulsory?
Surely more should be done to make cycling safer through driver education and safer cycling schemes by councils, police and local people rather than create a diversionary tactic and make it compulsory for cyclists to wear helmets.
Perhaps if motorists showed more caution and politeness, helmets wouldn’t be considered an essential bit of kit by cyclists to protect themselves from ignorant and distracted motorists.
