The Fall and Rise of the Bicycle

I really am begining to think that cycling is on the up in the U.K. I keep seeing articles in the papers about cycling and yesterday I caught the the three minute wonder on channel 4.

Then this morning I got a message from Alec telling me about "Fall and Rise of the Bicycle" which you can pick up, like I did, on listen again for two weeks.

Interesting that the cycle lane described in Copenhagen was 7 feet wide. Now if any of our planners could build cycle paths like that I may come around to them, but then the cycle courier explains that using bike lanes is compulsory and that cyclist had been knocked off by a pedestrian who just wondered into the bike lane which gave a different perspective.

I think I'll stick to the roads.

Thanks Alec. Keep getting better.
