So is a “riding licence” the answer? “People are more likely to die during a mile of walking than a mile of cycling, so does this mean we also need a pedestrian test?” says Roger Geffen, Cycling UK’s campaigns director. He argues attempts to force cyclists to do anything – such as bicycle helmet laws in Australia and New Zealand – have led to a drop in cycling. “Let’s not put barriers in the way,” he says. “The benefits of cycling are huge.” Image copyright Getty Images Many adult riders remember taking their Cycling Proficiency as a child – the […]

Whoever is responsible for the Mayor of San Juan’s T-shirt collection, we’d like to take this time to thank you. Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, not one to mince her words or protest T-shirts, wore a black T-shirt emblazoned with the words “NASTY” on it to a Univision interview Wednesday morning.
