I think many, not all, 'Cycling Officers' are there more by the chance that
they have a cycle, and the councils have to appoint a 'Cycling Officer',
rather than they're actually interested and enthusiastic cyclists. If all
you deal with in your working life are Local Council structures and Highway
Engineering Departments, your outlook is likely to be coloured somewhat. It
is possibly also the case, it is in my council anyway, that cyclists views
are expressed more from a car drivers viewpoint purely because enthusiastic,
knowledgable and cyclists who are interested in campaigning for and changing
views, don't work for councils, and especially don't work for small
councils.

It's easy enough campaigning, the hard bit is getting them to listen and
understand.
