For many, driving was associated with a degree of difficulty in itself. We all have a twinkling softspot and find it easy to fall in love with mans real best friend…the car!
However In more recent times, that relationship between man and it’s machine has faltered. Not only due to the novelty of driving becoming less and less appealing, the complete toll on the road has became a significant public health and safety issue. The number of crashes on the roads has never been so high.
Tired of traffic and lack of space on the roads
Today’s roads a quite frankly full, finding a parking spot is usually tough, if sometimes impossible and for several, driving has become a burden. People in their droves are turning to the next best thing…cycling! It’s faster and easier to ride a bicycle on several urban journeys than to drive. Especially cycling in London.
