Sir: I write to agree with John Lewis (Letters, 14 May). I have cycled to work in London for 16 years, including through two pregnancies and carrying a young child on the back of the bike - without serious accident. I am continually outraged by the behaviour of some other cyclists, whose behaviour is unlawful.

It not only means that we are all assumed to act in this way, but at times their actions have jeopardised my safety. It is enough that we have to contend with vehicle-led transport policy and tokenistic "cycleways", but that we should all take the blame for the actions of a minority of inept and often "fairweather" cyclists is unfair.
