A migrant to the area surveys the prospects for Manchester becoming a cycling city...
Practical advice on how to survive the UK's roads on a bicycle.It truly is.It's brilliant(ly focussed on fit, confident, assertive cyclists)......and a sad example of how short-changed we are.A friend of ours is Danish - comparing her home country with ours for cycling? There is nothing here to compare.I got knocked off by an overtaking car when riding in the secondary position up a v.wide single carraigeway last year, luckily with just a broken pedal & shaken nerves to show for it, and now look at Cyclecraft a little differently.
Indeed, a great survival manual it is, but the foundations of a better cycling culture and the growth of cycling rates it most certainly is not. The fact that it is treated as such is to the detriment of us all.
Tsk, don't laud the counter revolutionaries and back sliders, Mad Cycle Lanes.
