Driving down into town this morning I was surprised to see a lot of cyclists on the roads. I noticed it last week too when I was driving through country lanes to see my son.
I did hear on the news that more people are taking to cycling since the lock down .
My concern is that none of the ones I saw knew HOW to ride a bike in the main. Weaving all over the place & riding 2 or 3 abreast in the lanes they were just plain dangerous. One man suddenly veered over towards the middle of the road in front of me with no hand signals or looking to see if anything was coming up behind him- luckily I was able to slow down in time.
We have a group of young lads locally who ride always on the wrong side & think it is great fun to weave all over the road- I know some of my neighbours have followed them home & spoken to the parents but it was all adults I saw this morning.
Is it about time that cyclists have to take a road test & need insurance?
