there’s ‘Safety in Numbers’ in York

As we know from the CTC, there is safety in numbers:

York, the authority where cycling to work is most common, is, by our calculation, the safest place in England to cycle.

Yes, York, city of crap cycle lanes, where the fatalities include the best cyclist York had ever known and involve lethal mini-roundabouts and where you can even be killed by a lorry on an off-road Sustrans bike path and where yesterday – oops…

A CYCLIST was taken to hospital after being involved in a collision with a car at the junction of Piccadilly and Tower Street, in York.

And in the comments to this story, one York cyclist seems a bit grumpy, commenting

CYC will take central funds to fanny-about with road markings, etc, but it does little to make the roads safer for cyclists.
