Cyclists have long been at the centre of a heated debate about whether or not bike riders need to have compulsory insurance and registration plates. Despite a few high profile accidents in the UK in recent months between people on bikes and pedestrians, the risks to other road users presented by bike riders versus motor vehicles is minuscule in comparison. We also have this weeks inspiration, hacks and bodges, and we announce the winner of a 3T Exploro courtesy of Komoot!
