Our hope is to increase choice across the county when it comes to transport. Better buses, better trains and more opportunity to walk and cycle so that we don’t always have to get into the car. This article on cycling in this country is a depressing read, as it shows that this is still far from a real option for the majority of people. I cycled for 10 years in London and got used to it, but I shouldn’t have had to get used to anything; it should be normal to have cyclists on the road, travelling to and from work. The council has started a cycle hire scheme and have a page dedicated to cycling around, but it does not seem to be common knowledge and the cyclist is still a rare sight. How can we make this happen more in our county?
