SIR: Thank you so much for publishing three letters last week reminding readers of the health and environmental benefits of cycling.

As a cyclist I enjoyed the reduced traffic and pollution of the Lockdown and my asthma improved dramatically. I noticed greater respect for cyclists.

Alas car drivers have now multiplied including the 'I hate bikes' brigade.....fortunately a minority.

Thank you again, Chronicle; I hope more people will ask themselves whether their car journeys are essential or could they use public transport or their legs or their BIKES??!!

Jane Hough,
