Letter: Safe cycling on Red Routes

Sir: Are not the dangers of cyclists on pavements more perceived than real? (Letters, 12,13, 16 July) The push-bike is a fickle machine and easily upset. Cyclists take very good care not to touch anything when riding.

On average cyclists cause fewer than five fatalities per year; motorists cause about 4,000, including some 200 cyclists and 1,500 pedestrians.
