4303Children & Bikes
- Feb 5, 2002Hi folks, in at the deep end!!! After struggling with anxiety and depression for a long time I was told by the doctor at the stroke clinic that I hadn't had one, but change or nothing was more certain!!!! So I gave up the car and job, resulting in at least a partial return of colour vision!
I recently fell out with my older, wiser cycling brother about a CTC campaign which claimed letting an 8 year old loose on the roads wasn't negligent.
Let there be no mistake, if you can ride a bike you should be safe on it!!! But in the current situation is it reasonable to use children, in what must be considered a front line!!!!
My thoughts are that by insisting parents don't let kids out with bikes you chip away at the "car = freedom" argument!
Hoping I don't get shot to bits!
