The Great Big Big Ride Bike Blog Roundup

I hope everyone who could make it managed to attend one of the big rides taking place around the country - with reports already in from London (with the view from South London too),

The Great Big Bumper Edition Bike Blog Roundup

Due to illness last week, this is an attempt to boil down two weeks worth of blogs into the already overheated weekly roundup, so apologies in advance for an even more hectic gallop through bike blog land than usual.

The Great Big What Do We Want? Bike Blog Roundup

Saturday's Pedal on Parliament seems to have kicked off the bike campaigning season with families to the fore, unimpressed by the minister's last minute announcement of more money for education - even those without any children yet consider

The Great Big Pedalling on Parliament Bike Blog Roundup

And yes, I am shamelessly hijacking this blog roundup (and the Guardian bike blog) to remind everyone about Pedal on Parliament which is needed more than ever after a bad week in Scotland - sometimes the greatest battle is to persuade people that they can make a difference.

The Great Big 'it's the Environment, Stupid' Bike Blog Roundup

The UK has a 1960s road network, a network designed for an age when the motor vehicle was the future of transportation, and its negative attributes were poorly understood.
