Re the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, Chris Boardman said:

The truth is that without sustained funding, this strategy won’t be worth the paper it’s written on. We know that when faced with other priorities like road maintenance, saving bus routes and new housing developments, cycling and walking will be put at the bottom of most councils’ to-do lists.

All these nice Government initiatives unfortunately never come to much in my experience. They simply do not put the power in the hands of those working at grassroots level who actually know more about what is happening on the ground.

Let’s hope these plans ultimately have a good outcome for runners too. [I’m not at all sure why the strategy isn’t ‘cycling, walking and running’?]

Today only 9 miles in the evening leading the Sweatshop 10K training in the rain.
