Daily Quote:

There’s a certain amount of freedom involved in cycling: you’re self-propelled and decide exactly where to go. If you see something that catches your eye to the left, you can veer off there, which isn’t so easy in a car, and you can’t cover as much ground walking.

The BBC offers education classes, Bicycle Heaven Rides and the Bicycle Library program.
