Training counts as investment, when it’s for cyclists, it seems.

Despite cycling being, well, as easy as riding a bike, it’s odd that whenever we mention transport investment, there’s one type of transport where you can ‘invest’ in training.

The DfT never claims that ‘educating drivers’ is an investment, and nor do they characterise the various pedestrian campaigns as investment, and yet, as a campaign backer for Boris Johnson’s re-election suggests, educating cyclists counts as investing in cycle provision. And British Cycling has a similar attitude too (note all that attractive high-visibility gear and safety kit, just to get on a bike.
