Are You Really Safer Riding in the Country Lanes?:

The article shows that 68% of car accidents take place on country roads which makes them a more dangerous place than the so called “main road”, I have always thought this which is why I mix my riding terrain.

  1. This is true. I’ve just had to go on a “National Speed Awareness” course (because I was caught speeding again on quite country roads) and apparently you get the least accidents on Motorways, then Towns and the most on Country Lanes. This is because idiots like me drive to fast on them ……. I’m taking my bike on the M25 tomorrow!

  2. I’ve been saying this for years Billy, but there is a puzzling deep seated fear in the club of main roads. It is good to mix one’s riding and long rides (4 hours+) on main roads at a moderate pace is all a part of the mix. But some fell on stoney ground and can’t see the wood for the trees. I mix it up all the time and always have.
