The kind of infrastructure that I’d like to see in Manchester!

Phewww! That was a catchy title uh?!

But you know, worth it. As Marc of Amsterdamize has put together a great video “Cycling for Everyone” that I think all our local authorities should watch!

I wish this to be the kind of infrastructure that our local authorities would want to work towards, to bid for funds to develop, to write policies to support.

I wonder how great it would be if we all emailed, individually, a link of this video, to our Council cycling contacts?

For example filling up the inbox of Mr West, who is the “Sustainable Travel and Smarter Choices” at o.west@manchester.gov.uk together with Manchester cycle forum at cycle.forum@manchester.gov.uk not forgetting Transport for Greater Manchester, because the bike is transport! Email contact is: tfgmc@manchester.gov.uk These email addresses are all publicly available here and here.

Something along the lines of:

“Dear xxxxxx,

I came across this fantastic video about the amazing cycling infrastructure that is present in the Netherlands. This is the kind of infrastructure that I would love to see being developed in Manchester (or city/town where you live). Don’t you?”

A polite, upbeat message… why not? It may even brighten up the recipient’s day, as much as it did brighten up mine!
