SIR – Can I make a plea to all parents whose children ride bicycles?

Please make sure their bicycles have front and rear lamps and that they have new batteries in them.

Please impress upon them that it is not “cool” to ride around our streets at night without lights.

Some time during this coming winter, a young cyclist will be knocked off their bike and seriously injured because they could not be seen.

Tony Johnson, Hazel Heads, Baildon
