That is, in my opinion, the problem.
If the motoring lobby (in which one has to include Sustrans - by their
fruits shall ye know them) succeed in getting cyclists off the roads in
some areas, the already widespread attitude that cyclists 'shouldn't be on
the roads' will spread and harden, and we'll all be worse off.
The solution isn't building ghettos for cyclists. The solution is making
the roads safe for people.
I, too, shall not be voting for Sustrans.
