One of the nice things about cycling in to work and back is the hour each way when (when not having to be 100% concentrated on the road) your mind can drift. Sometimes it can actually be pretty productive. Not surprising then that on a bike, those ideas are sometimes about bikes.I had one of those ‘moments’ today. Not a new idea, just a way of looking at something. I couldn’t remember being put forward before, I could be wrong.Its that old argument about car/cycle argument about rights to be on the road. It always seem to be cyclists shouldn’t be allowed…etc. etc.What I can’t remember being put forward is that ‘cyclists’ (as a minority) aren’t allowed on the road. Rather - every single person in the UK, male-, female, adult, child has the right to be on the road using a bike. People don’t have the automatic right to use cars on the road unless they pay additionally for the privilege (not for the road upkeep) The argument usually put across, creates a majority group of drivers, and a minority group of ‘cyclists’. Which is used as reinforcement for the usual badly thought out driver rants. Whereas the right to cycle on the road is EVERYBODYS. Which from a conceptual point of view reverses the situation.
