Readers comments on the campain

Danny Williams, the most prolific cycling blogger who deserves a lot of credit for getting the public debate about cycling safety going, comments on the campaign and on cycling safety in general: Boris Johnson – you promised a ‘cycling revolution’ and you’ve completely failed to deliver. Even The Times suggests your thinking on cycling is way out of touch. Each of us can do something about this
