Obviously, I am one of those types who can no longer take the name Alan seriously.

What I can take seriously, however, is bike safety. A work colleague, Sam I am, whose bike is often parked near Alan’s, reported this morning that his new bike is quite totalled and his old ankle is quite bruised after a quite disturbing run in with a fellow traveller.

There’s been a lot of fun things aimed at increasing road harmony, but in the end, I feel like it’s important to look out for your fellow Alan, or Steve, or Sam, or Shirley.
