Apologies. If one tries to bring a bike onto a train or a bus, one finds there is no facility to do so. There are certainly no facilities for parking them at either end of the journey. We have so much work to do. We need to unite in this House and get to that work. Accelerated investment in cycling is needed. If that is provided, greater participation in cycling will be encouraged, roads will be safer roads and congestion will be reduced. The health of cyclists and the environment will improve and overall everybody will be a winner.
