I just ‘had to bang on and on’ on how pleasant Oxford was after being in
pro-motorist London so I wrote to the Tory Leader of Oxford County Council – a fine example to fellow Tory Boris Johnson who is making cycling HELL in London. Oxford certainly shows the Mayor on how it should be done:-
“Thank you for your kind comments which are much appreciated. I am delighted that you found the visit to Oxford so enjoyable. We are currently planning to pilot a Rent-a-Bike scheme in the City similar to those operating in some European cities. Next time you visit, you may be able to hire a bike! I am copying your e-mail to my Cabinet Member for Transport who will be as pleased with our positive e-mail as I am.
Keith R Mitchell CBE”
