Camden Council Cycling Awareness

This post is not about a 'cool' or 'trendy' bike related topic but actually a short video by Camden Council regards road cycling awareness.

When not on the HBP courts, I'm normally riding on London's hellish roads amongst the millions of other users. I do my best to be seen and ride 'ahead' of the traffic but unfortunately many 'commuter' cyclist don't. As a result accidents, some sadly fatal, occur too often these days.

The most recent increase in bike accidents are involving either HGVs or buses crushing riders on their undersides (ie blind sides). These accidents could be reduced if only both riders and drivers look and think more before putting each other in such dangerous positions.

So just thought this was worth a post...

Look out for each other!
