I was filling in the Road.cc survey and it really made me think what I liked about the site.
I think one of the best things about it, is the fact it "stands up" for cyclists. i.e. all the coverage of unecessary deaths on the road, reporting on near misses, and close passes, on Chris Boardmans initiatives, West Midlands Police initiatives, etc etc, the list is massive.
Then I thought about the Road.cc competition on other websites and Youtube channels I regularly look at. Mainly GCN and Bikeradar.
I suddenly realised that I could not remember ever seeing anything similar on GCN or Bikeradar, that stood up for cyclists rights, or our safety on the roads. Maybe they do cover it, but I cant ever remember seeing it. And if they do, its definitely not a regular feature.
I love Road.cc standing up for cyclists, but considering GCN and Bikeradar probably have a large readership/Viewership as well, they don't seem to do it much, or at all. Which doesnt really go anywhere towards improving conditions on the roads for cyclists at all.
Why is that, do you think?
