Britain Loves EntertainmentCycling
Close your eyes and imagine any road in Britain. Statistics say that you will almost definitely have just imagined people cycling. Right? Yeah you did. We love cycling in this country. Absolutely love it. Perhaps not as much as the Dutch love it, and not quite to the same extent that the people of Vietnam love their mopeds, but we’re not far behind.
Bicycles are great, and British cyclists fall into two camps. You’ve got the people who choose to hone a whippet-like frame, cover themselves top to toe in Lycra, and take their commute to work far too seriously. Some of them wear special shoes, some probably wear protective goggles. And then, in the meatier section of the venn diagram – if indeed this is a venn diagram – are the people in between. Otherwise known as “everyone else”.
The people who might have a pootle on a Boris Bike, or those who spent their childhood cycling slowly around town, occasionally doing clumsy wheelies to impress passing groups of girls. People who understand the quiet satisfaction of a weekend bike ride without turning it into a race. Yeah man, bikes are brilliant.
If you’re heading out on a weekend cycle, use our coverage checker to be sure you’ll be safe with signal on your phone wherever you’re riding to. We aim to have the best signal in the UK, so chances are you’ll be fine!
