NEW: Richmond has a slogan for cycling!

Richmond, it seems, has a slogan for cycling, and it goes like this: “More people cycling, more often, safely and for fun.” (see article below)

Now I’d suggest that someone made that one up on the spot, since the Local Implementation Plan actually talks about cycling in far more practical terms. However, the idea of cycling as just being something you do for fun does fit well with the article talking about the 90 new hire bikes being useful for tourism, and that’s about all.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m delighted that Richmond has a cycling champion, and she does a great job of putting a brave face on the council’s utter lack of interest in doing anything useful for cycling. But really? The council think that Richmond is a ‘cycling paradise‘, so they seem to think that not much more needs to be done …
