I am no longer cycling as I had a minor fall from my bike and broke my radius. Since tis mishap nearly everyone I have spoken to has mentioned a cylcing accident during lockdown. I have the impression that cycling accidents as more common than covid-19. Potholes and lack of maintenance of roads and cycle paths seems to be a major factor. Cycling is not going to take off for the many, until people feel safe, separated from heavy traffic (which has returned on main routes) and confident in the road surface.
Why the contribution is important
For cycling to become the norm it has to feel safe for everyone not just for keen cyclists. Unless it feels safe and really is safe this just won't happen.
