Daniel Zeichner MP for Cambridge and I joined MPs and other cycling stakeholders for a bike ride from the Dutch Embassy to Parliament. We began with breakfast and speeches at the Embassy, the highlight of which was the Dutch Ambassador claiming that he was simply a ‘MAM’ (Middle Aged Man) without the ‘IL’ (In Lycra).

The ride not only launched Bike Week 2016 but also the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group’s report of their inquiry into the Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy. The title of the report ‘Stuck in first gear -the Government’s Cycling Revolution’ says it all.
