HAVE 60 cyclists really been injured on Edinburgh's tramlines?

Where have they been all their precious lives? ("60 cyclists injured on tram tracks sue council", The Herald, January 24).

I'm a lifetime cyclist, and as a boy, had my fair share of jouking the front wheel across and over tramlines in Aberdeen and Glasgow. Top of the skills test was surely maneovring the bike on a wet nights on the cassies in between the points at Shawlands Cross. Or maybe trying to cross the fan of points of today's main tram terminus in Amsterdam provides the ultimate test?

In both venues, the death toll among us cyclists hasn't been very high.

Maybe Edinburgh cyclists just need to get out more.
