Default Crap Cycle Lanes hit the News

Frustrated cyclists from Warrington have published a book of poorly-planned
cycle lanes in a bid to highlight their problems.

Video he www.bbc.co.uk/northwesttonight/latest_stories/index.shtml


To promote greater awareness of bad cycle facilities the Greater Manchester
Cycle Campaign are issuing copies of the book to various peeps in the
council. The BBC picked up on the GMCCs press release and this is the
result. Pretty good job, though they used one photo that wasn't a bad
facility.

This might work when they've changed that page (doesn't look like they keep
the stories up for long):

'Tis there on the first link, either watch the whole program or select
the segment titled "Life in the cycle lane".

Sorry, I didn't explain it well. Go there tomorrow evening and the first
link won't be there, or rather it will, but the stories will all be
different. Hopefully the second link I posted will still work.

Thanks! The other page link told me I needed to upgrade to a compatible
browser, but the one above works. I'll try to play it at/before North
Somerset Cycle Forum (6.30pm, The Campus, Locking Castle) tonight.
