The idea that cycle campaigns are accentuating the danger in cycling
I may actually scream.
The idea that I shouldn't worry, because, statistically, cycling is safe.
Statistically, I wont be another woman under a lorry.
Statistically, I am more at risk sitting on my arse.
There aren't enough expletives in my vocabulary to express my anger at being patronised in such a way.
Because no matter what you get statistics to say, I have real genuine fear cycling along some roads. Some are a complete no go.
That fear is magnified a million times when I think of my children taking to the streets.
To give me a virtual pat on the head and tell me my fear isn't real, has enraged me.
I am off to calm down
