Beetroot, I used to cycle in London pretty much every day for over 30 years. Now I live in Devon, but when I come back to London I use the cyclescheme bikes (won't give away my political leanings with a prefix) to get around. I guess I must be one of those idiots. It's easy to tar everyone with the same brush, and dangerously simplistic.

To think otherwise and therefore not adjusting your behaviour when in traffic is irresponsible if you ask me. Would I rather be hit by a car or a bicycle? Neither, to be honest with you.bikes are not 2,000 ton boxes of metal that kill and maim people, especially children.
