Yesterday, BBC Radio 4’s 'You and Yours' asked listeners whether cyclists should take a test and have number plates and insurance. CTC campaigner, Sam Jones seeks to slay these myths.
It’s a great shame that the BBC appears to be building a reputation of having an anti-cyclist stance. Last November, BBC Breakfast ran its series 'Cycling - The Road Ahead'. It turned out to be a missed opportunity for the BBC to broadcast a meaningful debate that might have educated the wider public, which frequently and sadly is misinformed about cycling.
