They’re issues that, along with helmets or hi-vis clothing, divide cyclists – should you jump red lights, or cycle on the pavement? A sixth form student from Cambridge, Bradley Stearn, has sought to address those issues and others in a thought-provoking short documentary called Pinch-Point that explores the attitudes held towards cyclists by a variety of road users in Britain’s leading city for cycling. It’s well worth watching.
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
