Now that's a real cyclist
The Telegraph's Anna Tyzack eulogises the Bike Hire scheme this morning, perhaps a bit generously, but is worried about her cyclist status:
"Even though I go to work by bike, I’d be reluctant to describe myself as a cyclist. I don’t wear Lycra...
On several occasions I’ve been hissed at by officious fluorescent-jacketed cyclists at traffic lights. Once I’d forgotten to switch my lights on, another time I’d been going too slowly, and last week a man on a racing bike took umbrage at the bag of books in my basket (“You crazy idiot, get a rucksack!”)."
Anna, don't worry. You're welcome here.
