As chair of the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain, I write to you regarding your #cycleyes campaign, which has been attracting a good deal of media attention recently.
I would like to emphasise that your concerns about cycling on the pavement are our concerns too. Cycling on the pavement suits nobody. It's bad for pedestrians (especially those who are partially sighted, or blind) and it's bad for people cycling too. Few would choose to cycle on a pavement shared with pedestrians if they had a safe and attractive alternative.
