London bike routes

Is this a great idea to identify the best cycle routes? Time will tell. Anything that helps people choose to cycle over using their car for short journeys is good in our eyes. Route Plan Roll has been set up to encourage and support those who want to make their next trip by bike in London. The site identifies the best cycle lanes to use. It then presents this cycle lane network in a handy, quick to understand map that you can download and keep to use when you want your next trip to be by bike. One less barrier.

Highway code change

The Highway Code is changing on 29th January 2022. Make sure you know about the new rules and don’t get drawn into the sometimes toxic narrative led by the media and the powerful motoring lobby https://buff.ly/3o28Hvz There has been a lot of vitriolic comment around about these new changes, whipped up by the media, of course, telling untruths about cyclists being told to ride “in the middle of the road”.

Uber anger

Uber is crushing and throwing away their older Jump bikes in the USA, just because it’s “too difficult” to recycle them. Just the waste. Horrendous. They are crushing them, yes, crushing bikes.  Perfectly good bikes. They may look a bit strange but there’s nothing wrong with them and they’re usable.  Who makes these decisions? #heartbreak or #anger What do you feel? https://buff.ly/2AcsOl2 #bike #cyclinglifestyle

Speeding drivers
