Coping with cycling dangers on north's roads

Presenter Chris Jackson investigates the dangers on the roads for northern cyclists especially when riding in heavy traffic.

He tried cycling through Tyneside during the rush hour with mixed results.

Some progress is being made in Newcastle with new cycle provision but there is still a long way to go before it can compare with its Dutch twin town of Groningen.

BBC Inside Out North East and Cumbria is broadcast on BBC One on Monday 3 December at 19:30 GMT and the iPlayer nationwide for seven days thereafter.
