Richard, 57 year old, friend of Julie, lives in Brompton and likes to ride
Why do you ride?
Cheaper and faster than car/bus/train
Best thing about cycling?
No parking problems, no peak hour queues, no petrol consumed.
What improvements would you like to see for cyclists?
Greater separation of cars and bikes, more bikepaths away from major roads, bikelanes on major roads are deathtraps.
Fondest cycling memory?
Every time I arrive in one piece.
Choose the path that has fewest cars around you, even the best drivers make mistakes and you have more to lose than they do.
