I wish to gauge residents, and visitors to Solihull, views on cycling.
I am a keen cyclist myself but, beware the Councillor, or citizen who thinks they know all the answers just because they ride a bike. I also know a lot has been done in the borough in recent years, some by the local authority, some by Solihull Cycling Club (especially the Cycle Circuit in Tudor Grange Park). However, even though there are cut backs to be made, or efficiency savings where appropriate, the cycling agenda is wide reaching. It has an important part to play in helping our young (and older) people adopt healthier lifestyles and maybe it should not be left to the Highways budget to sort out the cycling agenda.
