    There's an increasing number of 'obstacles' that force cyclists further into the road or chance either a puncture or dismounting in a fashion they hadn't chosen.

    We have a roundabout near us where there is a 'fly-through' for traffic going straight on and as you enter the carriage way which is rather narrow there is a grid that isn't level with the road surface. It is depressed by about two to three inches and even at a leisurely pace it's a major hazard. Every time a stretch of road is resurfaced the grids never seem to be raised to match the extra height of the surface where the original surface hasn't been scraped off! It is this feature of road surfaces that drivers never encounter as it sits by the kerb.

    So are roads and they are generally easier to cycle on. than the appalling excuses for cycle ways that too many councils provide though some are OK.

    If I'm honest it looks like it has been set for someone with tiny legs. The saddle has also been changed for a larger model.
