The Boris Bike Brigade

One of our absolute favourite things to do in London is cycle around the city. Morning, noon and evening, anytime, anywhere.

1) Ban cycling helmet. That’ll make’em slow down and cycle more CAREFULLY.

2) For educational reason, the cause of any major/fatal accident should be disclosed to the public in brutal details such as the layout of the road, path of the cyclist and vehicle, and how it collided and the resulting injury etc. That’ll teach’em.
