I seem to have run into a flurry of cycling couples over the past few days. It only serves to underline how sociable cycling can be, whether they're both cycling or just one of them. It's not quite the same as driving down the motorway with your friend in the lane next to you. Here you're chatting, interacting, moving from A to B and back again together. To work, to the cinema, to a café, to a nightclub, what have you.
And you do it regardless of age.
With those you know or those you hope to get to know even better.
And you do it on bike lanes wide enough for two or even three.
And if your friend or loved one isn't available, you can always take their bike for a ride instead.
