    A lot of riders go on the shared paths at 20mph on pushbikes.
    I know because, my Garmin says I'm dong 12, they pass me then disappear in the distance.

    I purchased my pedal assist on Cycle to Work scheme to funnily enough cycle to work.
    This will be great for employees of businesses who don't buy into it.

    Excellent idea. Anything that gets people on a bike is good news as far as i am concerned.

    As welcome as this is, I feel this is mere crumbs from the table. It pales in comparison to the 35% *grant* enjoyed by people buying electric cars that will do nothing to ease traffic congestion.

    Will electric bikes owners benefit from free on-stret charging the way car owners do? No.

    If the government was serious about tackling congestion, this situation would be reversed.

    (And I might as well end with a "Bah humbug"!)
