The trouble with bicycles

James May, presenter of BBC Top Gear, writes about his bike commute one day and the trouble with bicycles in a Telegraph UK article.

The trouble with bicycles is that they’ve been accorded an importance out of all proportion to their actual usefulness.

Having ridden in London on a Brompton, May should thank the city planners for an infrastructure that allowed him to get to his interview in 5 minutes. That’s definitely changed since 1885.
