Those Milk Tray men on bikes need to buy some £6 lights

Have your say

Ive been amazed at the volume of cyclists pounding the streets recently.

I’m not sure whether they’re the post-Christmas calorie-burners or it’s the after-effect of the Wiggins and Hoy phenomenon.

But it’s good to see and Portsmouth is perfect for cycling – flat and with a generous helping of cycle lanes.

Although for some bizarre reason there are still some out-and-out loonies who insist on not using lights on their treaders.

At night time, in a car with rain cascading down your windscreen, your senses are challenged enough without cyclists seemingly dressed as the Milk Tray man.

Here’s a tip. Buy a set of lights for £6.
