I was watching the news this morning on BBC and a report came on saying that cycling was down all over the U.K. All but London where it is up by 10%. The base of this going by the BBC is that cycling is still thort of as a pore man's form of trasport! how can this be. My sister got her first car for £80 yes it was a banger but it was a car with all the running costs. Is it not the same with cars as for bikes! Price bands Bike - Car - Seen as £50 to £100 - £80 to £600 A cheep banger £100 to £270 - £600 to £1000 Bace line commuter £270 to £500 - £1000 to £5000 Getting to the nice bits £500 to £1000 - £5000 to £10000 Some nice bits of kit £1000 up £10000 up. Some one thats got cash I dont get it if some one can spend £1000 on a bike they have to have some cash. And as we all know the running costs are less on a bike then a Car so is it not the one with the Bike is the wise one not the pore one?
