On Surrey roads so far this year there have been.............
191 Time Trials
46 Road Races
70 Sportiv Events
(Source Surrey Police)
There have been 4 events that warranted partial or full road closures.
Serious accidents involving cyclists (not involving motor cars but simply falling off or colliding with other cyclists) have risen from 49 to 122.
I am in no way defending the motorists, they are just as guilty, what I will defend is my right to travel freely to and from my place of work or to go about my normal weekend activities without having my driveway closed off for the sake of a bike ride.
