Sustrans tool

Carlton Vale cyclist

Here’s a great story as @sustrans has created a tool to let people share their views on newly created emergency cycling and walking infrastructure.

Wouldn’t it be great to keep that infrastructure in place and have a legacy that creates some good out of all the bad stuff that has happened during the Cornona Crisis.

Pollution solution

We must find a way to keep bikes safer on the roads once lockdown has lifted. Although, you’re more likely to have an accident gardinging than you are cycling on UK roads, the public perception is that iit is unsafe.

It’s been one of the major benefits of lockdown, reduced car traffic and pollution – let’s make sure we try and keep some of that good stuff.

Speeding drivers

This is good – Police across the UK have launched a three-week blitz on speeding drivers to keep vulnerable road users safe. How sane and sensible is that? Good news indeed.
However, we also need to not just clamp down on the wrong-doers, but educate everyone on sharing the road and not waging war out there on our roads.

Mountain bike helmets

There’s always lots of controversy around bike helmets. Mention the words “bike” and “helmet” in the same sentence and opinion will immediately be polarised quicker than you can say the word “Brexit”!
Surely though,  it’s a given that you wear one if you’re mountain biking? – but what’re the best options available right now?
