Reid speaks out

10 March 2014

Politicians like to tell people what they want to hear and will say different things to different audiences, believes Carlton Reid, who will be giving a breakfast briefing at Cycle City.

 “Over the last few years many different local and national politicians have had warm words to say about cycling but the level of funding for cycling is still far below what it needs to be,” says Reid, who is the executive editor of trade magazine BikeBiz. “British politicians will need to make some brave decisions in the near future, decisions that may be unpopular with the motorised majority,” he adds. “If bicycles don’t get Dutch-style priority at, say, junctions, there’s little point in building infrastructure that merely looks Dutch.”

Reid runs website ipayroadtax.com and edits the cycle industry’s levy site BikeHub.co.uk
