Safe and effective cycle paths are few and far between, and will remain so until major public investments are made. In the meantime, I encourage my 13-year-old daughter to ride with care on the mainly empty pavements alongside main roads, and ride through the local park to school.
This may be illegal. It is, however, potentially lifesaving. As a parent, I would prefer to pay for a fine than a funeral.
