'Advocates' doesn't sound good - more negative press headlines? Some idiot MP attempting to make helmets or high viz compulsory?

Is this about the Parliamentary thingy?

Could it be a big bike retailer has carried out a survey and results say cyclists should have number plates or similar?

I know, I was being facetious.

It's hardly a storm - just a clueless bit of PR, or, them nailing their colours to the motons' mast, depending on what you make of it.

It will result in: Daily Mail headlines, but they don't need any excuse.

It will not result in: registration, proficiency tests, etc etc.

The timing isn't great, given the 'urgent review' of cycling crime and punishment, but that isn't the fault of the cretin at Halfords who decided that 2,000 people grunting at a questionnaire was worth some shiny infographics.

That cycling feels in a perilous position is because we have utter bellends like Norman and Grayling in the Ministry of Transport. Save any ire purely for those twats.

What? a cycling person complaining about advocating?  What's this world coming to?
