Are you ever put on the spot by someone who's not very sympathetic to cycling?
  • Do they tell you that cycling’s far too dangerous to contemplate, and they can’t believe that more cyclists don’t wear helmets and hi-viz?
  • Do they accuse cyclists of causing havoc, riding on pavements, upsetting pedestrians and jumping red lights?
  • Do they say cyclists should stop slowing down traffic and remove themselves and their machines from the road, forthwith? Either that, or pay ‘road tax’, be registered and licenced?
