Citizens! The new Times "Cities Fit for Cycling" campaign targets councils like that of S Gloucs.
Unfortunately our council could not support any of the objectives of the campaign, especially that bit about providing useful infrastructure. As far as the council is concerned y\the only role of cycling infrastructure is to keep people on cycles out the way of cars -and if there is a conflict, the bicycles lose.
For that reason, we, the People's Cycling Front of S Gloucestershire have some artwork to donate to the council, their own logo that they can stick on the vans that block bike paths.
Some people might think "will not the council be embarrassed by this?"
S Gloucs council doesn't give a fuck about bicycles. We know that because we have seen photographs of the new Great Wall of Filton! Until one of our campaign units has visited the site we can not confirm that it is real, but if it is, it actually makes the path with a 50cm dropout look good. At least that one could be ridden on a mountain bike.
Until that coverage, enjoy our new logo. Before any outsiders complain that the word "shit" doesn't join up with the rest of the sentence, compare it to S Gloucs cycling farcilities before slagging of our graphics.
I think your cities shit for cyclists artwork could be put to good use in a great many towns and cities around the country. Maybe a comprehensive list?ReplyDelete
For a real badge of shame the artwork should be different. Someone with a lorry right up their arse?ReplyDelete
