I've been riding for 30 years, with the odd break here and there. I use my bike mainly for commuting, with the odd weekend run every now and again. The traffic is getting worse and worse over here as our population is going up, but infrastructure remains the same. You can get through it on a bike though. I don't really ride thinking about economy, this bike's so cheap to run, I don't feel I have to. I just ride to the road conditions really. I think generally, driving standards are reasonably good over here, but you do see the odd idiot. There's not a week goes by where I don't see an accident on the Motorway, sometimes a few a week. If I used a car for work, It'd add hours a week onto my commute, especially when there's an accident.
