Just what would it take for motorists to start noticing bikers and cyclists? Naked cycling might not be the ideal solution — it can get a bit brrr — but our intrepid volunteer certainly turned a few heads on his commute through busy London streets. The stunt was part of the AA’s #ThinkBikes campaign, backed by keen cyclist and AA President Edmund King along with the AA Charitable Trust. Let’s all stay safe on the roads!

Cycle Facility of the Month:
July 2014


  These innovative lane markings were designed in response to a spate of cycle thefts from Tesco in Illminster. The shared-use pavement is designed to facilitate shoppers who arrive by bike and have to walk home, while preventing thieves approaching the store on foot and making a quick get-away on a stolen bike.
