The shorts are out, even if a good tan is not. The rainjacket begins to feel superfluous, even when it does rain. Woolen socks and fleecy gloves are no longer necessary. And yes, there are more cyclists about - on roads, on pavements too. Groups of kids on BMX, novices on mountain bikes - like I was, only 6 years back. Lycra-clad types, old codgers on touring bikes, the lot. Yes, the numbers are up, though i suspect it's only noticeable to cyclists, the total figures still a very small fraction of traffic, a marginal form of transport.
