Social Comment : Safety and "Safety"
This is my space to talk about 'the issues' facing cyclists today:
- hiss at spineless politicians
- boo the appalling police service, CPS/fiscal and judiciary
- wince at infrastructure designed by idiots and built by the lowest bidder
- grit your teeth at the ignorance of the so-called 'great' British motorist
- weep crocodile tears for the most foolish of your fellow cyclists
- disagree with everything!
Whether you agree or not, please feel free to get stuck in on the comments section - I'm always happy to defend myself.
