Subject: RE: BS: On your bike
Oh, Leeneia, you've made my day!

Use all your age and guile. Phones are ubiquitous and people drive along checking them while speeding through the city streets, arguing on Facebook or Twitter or sending inane texts.

The best way to cycle, in my world, is to use back streets as much as you can and work on the principle that virtually all drivers are insane as well as homicidal. Though many are decent, and if they see you will be considerate - try to catch their eye when you can.

And never, never, never cycle up the inside of a truck or bus.
