LAST year 122 cyclists were killed on UK roads.
Many were not seen by drivers who, in the collision, were themselves well protected. Over the next few weeks, all over the world, cyclists take part in the annual World Naked Bike Ride.
York will host its eighth ride on June 21, leaving Millennium Bridge at 6pm and following a six-mile route.
Earlier this year, the levels of atmospheric CO2 hit a record high not seen in four million years.
It is widely agreed that this 40 per cent increase since the Industrial Revolution is due to fossil carbon being released from power stations, cars and other trappings of modern life.
