    Quite interesting. Out of 1/2 a million cyclists thats quite few deaths and injuries it seems.

    Annoyingly they seem keen on rehashing the "you're breaking the rules" rubbish :?

    Yes but how do they know there are 1/2 a million???? :evil:
  • More balanced than a lot of reports that you see - and nice that despite the distressing subject there was repeated reassurance about how safe it is to cycle 8)

    The MP was calm but hardly a rebel rousing Critical Mass campaigner who is actually going to scare anybody into doing anything :(

    No doubt they do - I'm just saying that she didn't strike me as an inspiring chairperson - someone who would energise a campaign, frighten the civil servants and her peers into actually doing something about the concerns of cyclists.
