Nope, can't catch us out with that old chestnut, m'deary. If everyone obeys the rules of the road then cycling is pretty safe, much safer than many other activities. Indeed, the health benefits of cycling mean that it actually has a positive effect on the NHS's finances in the long run. Whereas, stuffing yourself with fat, booze and fags is guaranteed to have a negative effect in most, if not all, cases. And, more to the point, even with the current levels of tax on booze and fags, they still cost the NHS more than they make.
Yes, I know that you know all this already. I am just pointing it out as you never know who might be reading.
