Some local authority officers are really keen to promote cycling, they’ll push through everything they can to bring a big cycle event to town to put cycling on the local agenda. They’ll get Bradley Wiggins’ team along with a whole host of other top UK teams to contest a bike race on the best streets there town has got, all live on TV.
Meanwhile there are other local authority officers who really don’t care much for reducing pollution and public health by making cycling a normal easy to do activity.
This is perfectly exemplified here
Thank you Durham council highways department , thank you.
