If someone's claiming that cycling is dangerous then it's for them to prove it not for me to disprove.We need to prove that cycling isn't as dangerous as it may seem
Separated infra shows that cycling is safe but motor traffic is dangerous so has to be kept segregated. Just as we do by generally segregating pedestrians and cars by means of a kerb. Nobody uses that separation to insist that walking is dangerous.If the roads are that dangerous that we are asking(demanding) seperate facilities, how does that portray cycling?
Cycling should be available to anyone not reserved for the few "brave".
We should be building environments where an 8yr old girl can confidently cycle to school with her friends and the elderly can safely choose the bicycle to travel.
Dotting the road network with riders swathed in PPE does nothing for that and ensures cycling as transport is marginalised by local and national government.
