Advice on bike riding

THANK you Mr Stockton (‘Bus pass qualification, Express Letters April 5) I was misled by Metro advertising, which they seem to be quite happy to leave to mislead us.

Having just found, after long searching, a Prince of Wales Hospice cyclothon entry form, may I add a note regarding the advice given in it?

It states that riders must ‘obey the Highway Code.’ Good advice, to a point, although I suspect that British Cycling’s ruling body has not read the Highway Code in a very long time!

For advice on how to ride a bike you really need the Stationery Office manual ‘Cyclecraft’.
