Do you cycle on the pavement?

Do you cycle on the pavement? I do. Sometimes I just want to enjoy my ride home without the fear that it might be my last. West Sussex may lack cycling infrastructure but it has plenty of pavements. You may have noticed that people of all ages and gender are cycling on Worthing’s pavements. Get…

Are you proud to be British?

Yesterday morning I needed all the courage and motivation that I could find. The thermometer read 5°C, the wind was howling and the rain was lashing down. I rolled down the road with it stinging my face to meet my brother. He was late so I took refuge in a bus shelter hoping he would…

One new cyclist but another is injured
