     Response Neil Evans commented,

         As an experienced driver of Cars,
      Lorries and Motorcycles, as well a
      keen Cyclist it’s clear to me that not all
      road users are respectful of other road
     users, and this event offered a great
     opportunity to educate and highlight the
    dangers that we take every day when
   travelling on our roads.
