There you have it folks. Just when you thought we had reached peak PC out comes this garbage. The walking and cycling commissioner is to set diversity targets for cyclists. Exactly how is this to work? Well it means more schemes to target groups that don't cycle and more money doled out. The fact though that the Independent reports this in a straight laced manner instead of treating it with the contempt it deserves shows how far down the rabbit hole London has got. Let people who cycle, cycle and those that don't won't. If people really want to make cycling more common, make bicycles cheaper.Too few women and people from ethnic minority groups cycle in London and more must be done to promote diversity among a largely white, male and middle class biking community, the citys walking and cycling commissioner has said.
