A short guide to National Bike Week

What’s National Bike Week all about?

Organised biked rides. Free breakfasts. And the white van that cuts you up may well be bearing the logo TEAM GREEN BRITAIN.

What changes will come out of National Bike Week?

None at all. But everyone taking part will feel terrific.

Are you seriously suggesting that Britain’s cycling campaigners are living in a world of fantasy?

Damn right I am. Cycling is flatlining and going nowhere. And the roads are getting more dangerous.

But that can’t be true! The new figures from TfL are very encouraging.

We’ll deal with that crap next week.

I suppose you are going to try and depress everyone with some photos of crap cycling infrastructure.
