It’s fact finding time. In response to the AA’s declaration of “Cycle Safety Day” and the somewhat patronising survey result of their members, 97% of whom thought cyclists should wear helmets, we have launched our own survey.
It’s easy to enter just vote using the link above and feel free to add any other comments below as well. We want to find out what you feel about this! If you haven’t seen the coverage then you can read our article about the helmet handout.
Help us spread the word and find out what the cycling community really thinks…
Our man on the spot
One of the Going Going Bike team did manage to cycle down to the second helmet handout spot in High Holborn in London on Friday. He reported a huge queue of people waiting for the handout. As with the morning handout, all helmets and high viz jackets quickly went.
What was surprising was that there was no sermon or even a leaflet handout eulogising the AA position on cycle safety before the handout started. The couple of people he spoke to before the handout began had no position on the AA’s patronising campaign and were happy to take what the AA were handing out as a freebee.
The Going Going Bike Cycle Safety Day Survey will be open for voting until the end of this week. Please vote now and forward to your cycling and motorist friends alike.
