I ave just seen on an international cycling forum a copy of your response egarding cycling in London.
Your comments seem to me to almost border on being offensive. Do you really think that roads were 'built for cars'? I am afraid that it is attitudes like yours that prevent full use of public transport and cycling facilities, as it is a negative and off-putting approach to London's transport problems.
The solution lies very much in the hands of you and other influential people, so if you are unwilling to be a little more pro-active, election time can be used to find someone who is.
Just in case you think that this matter is the ranting of a few cycling nerds, be aware that when the TDF visited England, more than 2.5 million people were reported to have turned out to watch it from the roadside
