Cyclists - bad for the environment
an extra £70m is needed to meet government targets on reducing congestion and enhancing air quality.
The average commuting journey is 8 miles # the average cyclist burns about 50 calories per mile # So there and back an extra 800 calories.
Where does that energy come from - food - more food transport, more packaging etc. More energy waste. So they consume more fossil fuels than Mr FM in his bloated plutocrat car. And then some of them shower - the many who don't can't talk about "improving air quality" -using more fuel. In fact a brolly through the spokes is the best thing you can do to improve the environment....
Oh, and did I mention they smell?
