Mad Cycle Lanes of Manchester: Where all the money went on cycling – part 2

A blog about how, despite all Manchester City Council’s rhetoric, provisions for urban cyclist is just about non-existent.  Richard Leese, makes out he is a cyclist and uses public transport but I have not witnessed him on either.  But he is a car owner and fought to keep a chauffeured limousine on the councils’ books for him to use.  Also, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) formerly Greater Manchester Public Transport Executive (GMPTE), does not employ non-drivers.  So, the very people who make decisions about pedestrian, cycling and public transport have no real experience of the issues of this large group of users.  Unless there is a major change in Manchester’s leadership, Manchester will never have a public transport system fir for the 21st Century, or be pedestrian and cycling friendly.
