A wheeled pedestrian chooses to…
- travel by bicycle rather than by car for short, local trips.
- travel by bicycle rather than on foot when it is quicker and more convenient to do so.
- wear a helmet if it satisfies personal anxieties of real or perceived safety.
- wear a helmet if it satisfies need for compliance with legal obligation.
- ride a bicycle that provides maximum comfort and utility.
- ride at a speed slow enough so as to arrive at destination cool and fresh.
- ride in clothes suitable for intended purpose at destination.
- ride slowly on the footpath (or any other compensatory behaviour) if it feels prudent to do so.
- ride without feeling obliged to behave like a two-wheeled motorist.
- enjoy the feeling of freedom that mobility as a wheeled pedestrian provides.
‘Cycling’ is sport and recreation. ‘Riding a bike’ is everyday activity. No sweat.
