Getting Repetitive Here

Getting Repetitive Here Getting Repetitive Here Getting Repetitive Here


A few snaps on the phone when in Bath for the Bath Cycling Summit, walking back to the bus stop...

Repeating the old mantras:

1. "It's too hilly to cycle in Bath".
2. "Build it and they will come".

From what you see in the pictures, which statement is nearer the truth?

Mmm. Tricky. (As Beyoncé replied when asked who she'd like to share her set with at Glastonbury)

I do wonder if that's why we don't get infrastructure without a fight: it's obvious it works, and which politician/planner wants more cyclists about demanding improvements?

Much easier to leave well alone and go home early.

In a car.

Very good point, Andy.

We all know that people with initiative, drive and vision tend not to be attracted to a career in local government.

And, that's the problem.
