It seems that motoring champion Jeremy Clarkson is beginning to see some of the benefits of cycling. As reported by the Environmental Transport Association [ETA], he recently used his column in The Sunday Times to urge ‘normal people’ to start riding bikes. By normal he means people unlikely to dress in Lycra  He hasn't turned into a fully-fledged ecowarrior just yet – his conversion is more to do with saving money, time and reducing his waistline, than saving the planet. Visit the ETA website for an interesting read as this develops into a discussion first,on helmet safety and second, cycling whilst under the influence of drink.
