pod_uq_final500Britain must be the worst place in the world to be a biker. Not only do we have to contend with the arcane rules about rights of way, footpaths and bridleways (give me strength!), public transport restrictions and their inconsistency from one operator to another pretty-well kill off any attempt to take up biking as a passtime or a practical means of commuting.

If only we had government with the vision to liberalise cycling at least to the level of other European countries where you can hop on or off a train, or even a bus, with your bike at will and get out of town and hit those trails.

They have it even better it seems in Australia where the rail operators are looking at installing Bike Pods with showers and secure lock-ups, care of a great organisation called Penny Farthing, at railway stations.

We poor Brits can only look on in envy. Where is the green lobby when you need it?
