    Cyclist Down. RIP

    Very sadly towards the end of my ride yesterday, I saw the Air Ambulance land in a field to attend an accident. I had not long previously noted that the helicopter had been at it's base in Cosford. The narrow lane was blocked completely by a large tractor and trailer. There wasn't anything I...

    Man Shot in Both Legs by Cyclist

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-52617244 BBCNI are running a story today about a fella who was shot in the legs up the road from me. The fact that they have classified the perpetrator as a cyclist seems a little odd to me. If the aggressor jumped out of a car would the victim...

    Things you should never say to a cyclist.

    Prompted by an article I was reading on Google. Here are a couple to start you off: Is all that lycra really necessary? I could buy a car for the price of that. Perhaps you could give some personal examples. Some smart responses might be interesting too.

    Saw a cyclist getting ticketed by the police

    I think the Met at least have been given new instructions to enforce restrictions more strictly. On my usual trip to walk the hound I saw three separate incidents of people pulled over and being given tickets, one of them being a cyclist in full lycra. The caveat of course is that I didn't...

    Aerodynamics and the everyday cyclist
