Safe Cycling

I started this Tribe following a discussion with @baldyjohn in the http://tribesports.com/tribes/tir-na-n-og tribe on cycling safety in Ireland. I was curious to find out what sort of attitude there was to cycling safety, particularly in a country with a rich history of cycling. However my focus has been redirected. In the UK there have been 20,000 cycling accident (reported) this year, with 13 deaths on London streets alone. It was only 12 last week when I had the discussion with John. 110 cyclists have been killed nationwide and another 3,000 seriously injured. Frankly these statistics are disgusting. There is a challenge on here to write to your MP lobbying him to do something more through parliament and there are no doubt various other initiatives but more needs to be done. As a basic human right you should not have to run the risk of being injured or killed just because you want to ride your bike , not just in the UK but everywhere Are there any initiatives in other countries that specifically deal with the safety of cyclists on the road and does anyone have any suggestions as to how we can stop this unacceptable carnage?

I don't want to do this as that means someone has lost their life, HOWEVER I want to start doing this in my area in remembrance of those and to also maybe make the public more aware, how would I go about this? Suggestions please.

Nick B encouraged this.
