Better to stay safe than sorry.

It has to be seen to be believed the way some drivers act towards cyclists.

Bought a bright orange top the other day with big reflective strips on it.

At least when I get mangled under a bin lorry, they won't be able to say I was to blame Deal with it

You won't have to look like you've just came off a shift on the trams. Premium gear with a nice cut and some stylish colours that have reflective pieces. GodIsGod

Yeah very good atmosphere, severe lack of decent bar tho.

Was nice attending a sport where all the fans don’t want to kill each other Quite Good

Apparently some of the roads out into the borders can be quite quiet.

BTW have heard so many people say the same thing as you. Not sure what the answer is though, but hopefully more people getting out on bikes will help.
Currahee!

No idea what is going through the drivers head there. I’d much rather overtake cyclists riding side by side like that then try and go past them in single file.

Can’t believe he only got a caution though, hardly discouraging others from losing the plot in the same way.
