Default little man on blue bike with flag

Has anybody else seen a little man on a blue bike with a flag on it? Is this a new legal requirement for visibility and do you think it helps him be seen by road users?

It's not a legal requirement and yes it does aid him being seen.

I think this whole flag concept is a great idea that should be used by other cyclists in Cambourne. After seeing the bike again in Lower Cambourne I to noticed that it has more stuff on it then an army tank!

I guess the 'little man' must be very safety conscious.

When I saw the bike I thought it was a well loved bike. Hand painted!!!!

That's not the best welcome I have ever had. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion even you, but as far as I can see your comment has nothing to do with the little man on a blue bike or his SILLY flag. So if you wish to start a new thread moaning about newcomers to the forum feel free.

Totally agree with fcmas. That seems to be the problem on here, one subject turns into something else because of certain people (mentioning no names)!
