Isn't this similar to the fox looking after the chickens?
...and how breezily the helmet issue is airbrushed into a little mention: "while regular users will be encouraged to use their own helmets, operators are yet to decide whether it will make helmets available" - really? This smacks of bureaucratic 'community consultation', flag-waving, and 'look-we-gave-it-our best-shot-but-it-was-always-going-to-fail' - how disappointing
How can a club of motorists possibly have the interests of cyclists (and the environment) 'at heart'?
PS: btw, following on from Monday's appearance in court, my appeal is set down for the District Court sittings starting next February 2010
