There’s a lot of talk at the moment about securing a legacy to follow the inspirational performances of Team GB’s cyclists at the Olympics. CTC is working hard to make sure that Britain seizes the opportunity.
Some of us have already noticed a difference when we’re out and about. Is it my imagination, or are drivers giving me a little more space on the road, and showing a little more patience when they want to pass? We know all about the “safety in numbers” effect – the most important thing the Games can do for us is to get more people out on their bikes, and we’ll all benefit from being more visible. And when many people get back on their bikes they will alter the way they drive – hopefully for good.
