Cycling Edinburgh’s Short Items

    So how dangerous is cycling?

    Statistically becoming much less so as more people take to two wheels. Strength in numbers is a principal that cycling enshrines. In 2007 the number of cyclists killed or injured on London’s roads was 19 per cent down on 1994 – when the number of journeys by bike was half what it is today. The signs are that motorists are adjusting their behaviour in response to the increase in cycling activity around them, and cyclists are learning the art of survival.

    I’ve given up on 25 years of cycling and don’t wish my kids ta take it up as drivers are so dangerous/incosiderate/have size issues etc. Ban seatbelts,make petrol dearer and drive a motorbike for 5 years before getting a provisional car license then I might consider changing my mind. For now I’m happy running and inhaling carbon emissions from a different angle and yes running through red lights before the car does.
