They say carbon monoxide is the silent killer.
I disagree. I say Bristol’s hardened urban cyclists are the silent killers. I am one of these cyclists, and I’ve had a couple of spills over the last few years.
But last week I was walking through the University part of the city and I noticed several cyclists doing really crazy things. Some were endangering others – some were endangering themselves. It’s remarkable how there aren’t more accidents involving cyclists.
So next time you’re out and about in an urban areas, don’t forget to use your eyes before you step into a road!
