The Twelve Days of Christmas

Apologies for my recent absence, unfortunately the blog had to go on the back-burner for a few weeks. It is now less than two weeks to Christmas, which means I can share with you The Twelve Days of Christmas (for cyclists) starting on the last verse. Feel free to sing along.

On the Twelfth day of Christmas my council gave to me

Twelve Cyclists Dismounts

Eleven-inch wide bike lanes

Ten side-road give-ways

Nine wheel-benders

Eight near misses

  1. You ungrateful cynic! Everyone knows cyclists should like, appreciate and use all the goodness our magnanimous 'betters' provide...

  2. Very witty :>D

    And 'Dr.C' no less!

  3. I like it. Although I must point out the lorry only nearly hit me once!

  4. I'm glad you all enjoyed it. Quite impressed at how far it spread too!

  5. Love it and sadly shows that idiots approve these lane and road designs.
