How To Cycle Up An Impossibly High Cliff

I’ve been mucking about with a presentation for a few hours. It still needs a conclusion (or at least for the final slide to stay in place long enough for you to read!), and a soundtrack / audio commentary. But see what you think:

    Hi Karl,

    I really enjoyed this post. It made me smile. Good idea!

    Love the approach to cycling growth, I like bing drawn down to the depths in he first place, then given a plank to ride out upon.
    I could be cheeky and say that what people additionally need I a decent and reliable way of finding their way from A to B in an adventurous way. But I guess that would be a plug for my business! Looking forward to Cycle fest Winchester this weekend. One of your verticals in action!

  5. I like it: it is clear and to the point and easy to follow. Makes me wonder (again) that we have to make a fuss for these things to happen.

    Could you make the ‘supports’ stay a little longer before they turn the ninety degrees to go under the ramp? I’m a fast reader, but I was pushed to keep up.

    Really good. When it’s finished I’d like to repost it on other, non-cycling, blogs. I would have added “teaching cycling proficiency in schools” as one of the supports.

    Possibly the support you are missing is something about homezones or their work/play equivalents? The bike infrastructure can be as good as you like but if the start / end of the journey are motor dominated then it bain’t gonna happen.
