Brief report from the Lancashire Cycling Strategy consultation

A brief report from our man at the steering group:

“If Dynamo’s key aim was to transform this Steering Group, that was well on its way to powering a sports led, elite group, determined to judge cycling success by ‘the number of potential podium place cyclists’, into a Support Group that puts utility cycling and education at the centre, then it may have been a successful day.

That is to judge from input from the floor, from where not a single voice was heard arguing that the project should be sport or even leisure led. The directorate claimed to be listening and noting in their role as a conduit for the participants’ suggestions.

Anyway, we shall see in January, when the redrafted strategy is published, whether it really was listening.”
