#THINKBIKES  

What an exciting day at the AA. Today we launched our #thinkbikes campaign in Marble Arch.

It was such a great day without a hint of the 'two tribe' mentality we have met before. Cycling, motorcycling, motoring groups all working together with great co-operation from the police.

There were no snipers from the sides. It was a truly positive experience. Chris Boardman, British Cycling Policy Adviser and John McGuinness, 20 time TT winner, were a joy to work with and really great blokes.

Halfords agreed at fairly short notice to get our stickers into every store in the UK and Ireland. No complaints. No hassle. Professional partners.

Smoke and Mirrors did a fab job with the video. Our naked cyclist was charming and I am sure will develop a great fan base. Musician, Gavin James, even allowed us to use his music.

But for me the bit that brought a tear to my eye and made me humble yet proud was that we were able, in a small way, to help get something out of a real tragic death. Not everyone knows that Tony Rich, AA patrol of the year, was the inspiration for our campaign. Tony's friend, Andrew, lost his son, Jack Bellis, in a motorcycle crash last year. Tony and the Bellis family wanted to do something and came up with an idea of a mirror sticker and motorcycle training.

Tony mentioned the idea to me and with support from the AA Charitable Trust for Road Safety I developed his idea into a national campaign to promote both motorcycle and cycle safety. Tony with his wife met two of his heroes at the launch in Chris Boardman and John McGuinness. In a touching gesture Chris Boardman signed Tony's Boardman bike (I want one).

It is difficult typing this without crying because we know there are quite afew young guys out there like Jack Bellis who deserve better treatment on the roads.

So please support our  #thinkbikes  campaign, enjoy the video and stay safe.

I posted earlier about a man dying after falling off Bridal Veil falls. I found out today it is an old friend, Jack Roberts. My condolences to his wife and friends.

http://rec-law.us/yOmQ6W British Mountaineering Council has created an online database to track indoor climbing wall injuries. You can do that in a country where the information can't be used to prove lawsuits or liability against you.

Have you noticed that Google Play has changed the way you can read reviews. It used to be you could search and read reviews based on the rating. I always read the reviews that were "1"s to see the problems. You can't do that now.  If an app has 5000 reviews the "1"s are last and you have to go through the reviews6 at a time to see the "1"s.  I quit trying new apps unless I can read the reviews.
