THINK BIKE for our two-wheeled population

Is it just my imagination or are there really more cyclists on our roads these days?

Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed so many more brightly coloured and lycra-clad two wheel enthusiasts whilst on my travels.  From the early hours of the morning to the darkest hours of the night.  Their energy and commitment must be applauded as every form of exercise is without doubt a step in the right direction.

On a personal note, I’m not sure if I would enjoy clocking up the miles in all conditions with view to keeping fit and healthy.  But not everyone thinks like me – fortunately.

And before you say anything, I already know that I would look ridiculous in colourful and tight-fitting lycra.

I do like seeing these crazy people head down and peddling but can’t help but think as to how vulnerable they are on our increasingly busy roads.

Time to THINK BIKE for our two wheeled population – this is something that we should all be embracing, after all, cyclists have been around a lot longer than us motorists.  Just a thought . . .
