While it’s good to have ambition, there are times when a dose of reality is useful. The reality for cycling is that it represents 2% of trips and 1% of kilometres travelled, and there are lots of reasons why not all trips can be cycled. So while it’s great to aim for the levels of cycling seen in the Netherlands and, nearer to home, in Oxford and Cambridge, at the same time the scale of the task should not be underestimated and setting more realistic, if still tough, targets can sometimes be more productive.
