Trudy Harrison, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Transport, who is the Government minister responsible for Active Travel, admitted that she has “pleaded” with her daughters not to ride their bikes near her home in Cumbria due to lack of safe cycle infrastructure.
She is not alone! – but what a truly sad state of affairs. Can’t wait for her to actually do something about this. there is currently small pockets of excellent infrastructure in, mainly, big cities. The rest of the country, the vast majority of the car-mad country, there is next to nothing. “I really want to see us, this government, roll out an incredible cycling revolution.” – yes, we’ve heard it all before, lets actually have some ACTION – on a national scale.
