Between safety conscious and being a self promoting police. In the last couple of years the use of cycling cameras such as Go Pro increased somewhat. Resulting in some amazing footage of cyclists, motorists and pedestrians getting into some horrific incidents, or people generally causing risks amongst themselves or to others.

Last month, we managed to complete the Velo Birmingham 2019 100 mile course, it was such good fun. Lots of riders (up to 11k on the day) most people riding for fun, some with vigour and some were racing. We did notice more crashes this year and sadly someone lost their life later in hospital after a big crash near Atherstone. Condolences to his family and friends.
Summer is now in full swing, I even managed to ride from home to Wales to visit my brother and his girlfriend there. Was a 109miles ride, and doing it 2 weeks after the Velo proved to be too much, having to check route and traffic made progress slower. But then the tiredness kicked in after mile 85 and I noticed some small climbs I had no motivation to ride them. But it was still very enjoyable and I eventually made it to my brother’s in time for dinner and a cheeky McD for starters!
Enjoy you summer adventures!
