Cycling expert in frank admission

As the curator of the UK's bicycle museum, David Higman has an unexpected stance on two-wheeled transport.

"I'm not a cyclist," says the man who has been head of the National Cycle Collection since 1997.

Nothing unusual there. There are cycle trainers who don’t otherwise cycle on the grounds that it’s too dangerous. There are local authority cycling officers who don’t cycle to work each day. And the entire cycling infrastructure of Great Britain is designed by car drivers!
