Attitude problem

Andrew Bolton's interpretation of the statistics quoted is misleading (Gearing up for a revolution, NCE last week). Surely 2.4 million cyclists covering 61km each annually shows a positive change in attitudes to cycling compared with a mere 600,000 covering 82km each twenty years earlier.

However, I don't need a calculator to assess driver attitude to cyclists. On my two and a half mile ride to work they seem to resent me being able to complete my journey faster on two wheels than four.

If more drivers were sympathetic to cyclists' needs on the road I believe a few more would capitalise on the opportunity to start enjoying the fresh(er) air outside their cars.
