For the avoidance of doubt, the vast majority of drivers are NOT psychopaths. The real issue is that our leaders refuse to build transportation systems that are safe for all users. Drivers need super-human levels of skill & concentration, just to not kill people. It is appalling.

Problem vs Solution 🚬 Air pollution? More cycling! 🚫 Road danger? More cycling! 🚗 Congestion? More cycling! 🌍 High CO2 emissions? More cycling! 🏥 Health issues? More cycling! Citizens: "We request safe cycling infrastructure." Councils: "Sorry we need space for parking."

So, apparently the reason that drivers choose to endanger me when I'm cycling is because I'm not "considerate of others". Psychopaths.

👎 71% of Londoners think road users are not as considerate of others as they should be, but only 9% think they themselves could be more considerate. We all need to play our part in making our streets safer. See their side. See safer roads ⤵️

And I truly don't want to judge other people's work, but as a human who cycles around and gets nearly killed far too often, the tired old Shared Responsibility messaging is just so frustrating to see and and an extremely harmful narrative to continue to push.

On this day in 1974, singer-songwriter / musician #NickDrake died. If unfamiliar, I highly recommend checking out his discography.

I think it is disingenuous to characterize Musk as a car salesman. He is a guy that can "get shit done" in a way that few can. It's just that his efforts are orthogonal to the direction that would ensure a better place for future generations. I want him to be better.

Don't forget to oil your chain in all this wet weather we're having, people. I can't stress this enough. Oil it.

Just a quick look at EU data on COVID vaccination and death rates. Data couldn’t be clearer. Vaccinations help to save lives - potentially your own too.

The clarity of the evening air on my ride home made the city and harbour look like they was cut from fine crystal. Sharp, intense, gorgeous.

The fear of the apex predator that we refuse to tame is burned into all of us at an early age. Instead of removing this danger we will forever ask children to be the adults so the adults can be children.

This reality is insane and here we are in 2021 and this hasn’t been solved. Thankful for the efforts of the @boringcompany @elonmusk to remove hours of lives missed from sitting in traffic.

Every time someone says that 'making it harder to drive will need radical changes' show them this. Creating current car dependency was only possible with a massive, decade-long and destructive effort to erase the city as we knew it. (via )

But safety is a shared responsibility. If you wear a reflective badge and make eye contact, you'll be just fine. Don't forget to thank the driver for not killing you. Better yet, protect yourself with an Escalade, like normal people do.

So I'm 6'3" and this is the hood height on the new Chevy Silverado trucks, I'm very confident pedestrians could survive getting hit by one, definitely, seems fine.

"I'm not anti vax but" this is the new "I'm not racist but" isn't it? Or is it just a precursor to a mouth prolapse of blithering stupidity the likes of which has not been seen since Boris last spoke in public. Seriously people, learn what research is and then just Fuck off.👍
