In good news for Britain’s cyclists the CTC has been given government funding to supply all the country’s cyclists with a free ‘Cycling Action Plan’ pack.
A Cycling Action Plan involves three simple stages.
Firstly, decide on your favourite modal share target (10 per cent is a very popular figure, for example). Be sure to set the target at least ten years in the future.
Secondly, tell all your friends how the target will be achieved with the aid of poster campaigns, winning respect for cycling, and cycle training.
A free extra-loud ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ whistle is included to blow at at those who would lose us ‘the right to ride’ by their unrealistic demands for Dutch-style segregated cycle paths.
Thirdly, spend the next ten years singing along to the Vehicular Cycling Campaign song, otherwise known as ‘Drifting and Dreaming’.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ‘CYCLING ACTION PLAN’ IS NOT GUARANTEED TO WORK AND CAN UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE RETURNED IF FAULTY.
