Cycle success or infrastructure failure?
I saw this sign yesterday. It was stuck to the corrugations of a roller shutter door on an office block in central Cardiff. I was torn down the middle. Half of me – the cycle advocate side – savoured the moment; proof positive that cycle uptake has increased to the point that parking facilities – in this office at least – are buckling. The other half of me – the business half that designs and sells cycle storage equipment – bemoaned another example of failing to invest in appropriate infrastructure.
However you see it, there is little doubt that there are more bicycles on the roads, on the trails and in our city centres. Making it easier for people to cycle is only likely to encourage more.
