EU-wide comparison shows GB has poor cycle use and cyclist safety, but we measure this superbly!

A new EU-wide comparison of cyclists' safety shows that Britain is among the top countries for measuring cycling . Now we need to make much better use of this information to substantially boost cycle use and improve cyclists' safety.

A few days ago I was welcoming new figures now being collected by the Government, through Sport England's Active People Survey, which shows levels of regular and occasional cycle use at a local level.

A guide to child bike seats

If you want to cycle with one child aged 6 months - 4 years one of the best things you can buy is a child seat for your bike. This cycle child seat guide will help you choose the right child seat and enable your little one to be happy, safe and comfortable on your bike.
CTC Vice President Josie Dew and her daughters

Most child seats are suitable for children between the ages of about nine months and four years. The lower limit is dependent on the ability of your child to sit up unsupported – that is, on the floor rather than propped up with cushions.

Some seats recline and children as young as six months – those who can sit up when propped up – can go in those. A reclining seat is better anyway because it allows your little one to drift off to sleep without slumping sideways or forwards.

The field in front of the palace was lined with stalls showcasing bicycles of all varieties and accessories of many purposes. Animal Bike tour offered a feast for the eyes performing tricks, stunts and somersaults on their bikes throughout the Saturday and a vintage bike carnival toured through the grounds on the Sunday. A favourite London and Bristol-based cycling café Look Mum No Hands supplied bacon baguettes and sumptuous cakes amongst tables of cycle-related posters, prints, caps and collectables.
