Fear of Cycling

One of the contradictions of campaigning for cycling is the desire to make more people take up the activity, whilst at the same time stating how poorly off we are in the UK for cycling facilities, and how the roads are far more dangerous than they should be. Dave Horton, Lancaster’s very-own cycling campaigner/blogger/academic/writer/thinker, has written about this on his own blog, Thinking About Cycling and this neatly dissects this debate for anybody interested in it.

(Dave’s blog is also just great reading for anyone interested in cycling so if you’ve not seen it before, I recommend it wholeheartedly).
