Bike immunity

Well, I haven't done a poll for a while. Why now? Why not? I could point out that since moving to Zone 7 I've had a longer cycle ride into work, which has given me more opportunities to observe the behaviour of the Cambridge cyclist in its natural habitat (a dishonourable mention should go to the flock of language students who tried to turn right from the wrong side of Gonville Place into the wrong side of Mill Road at the Parkside junction the other morning -- judging from their screeches of laughter they thought it was the height of hilarity that they nearly caused a multi-vehicle pile-up) but really the main reason for this poll is curiosity. I'm interested to know about people's cycling habits, and their reasons for doing the things they do. (For what it's worth, my own answers should make it clear that I don't have any kind of moral high ground here!)

Please do fill in the poll if you cycle at all, however rarely. I can't promise I'll be able to produce any kind of useful write-up of the results, but if you'll all just humour me and my insatiable curiosity, I'll see what I can do.
