    Ahh, irresponsible youth, I have ridden like that while working as a bike courier in London and Sydney – 20years ago. It’s a buzz and fantastic fun.

    Morphed from the dark side to become over the last decade a responsible bike advocate and adult cycle skills instructor who is more law abiding on the road when riding and driving than the majority.

    Indeed, and we’re so glad you survived. I must concur too, wearing the deep scars of two major accidents (ouch, rear vision mirror that went into my thigh!), and the memories of some nasty near misses.
    But here we go, glorifying stupidity. Perhaps our surviving was a Darwinian test.
