“Brent Council is beginning to develop a Cycle Strategy for Brent. This Strategy will aim to achieve the following vision:
· To make Brent a borough where everyone can cycle safely, in comfort and with confidence.
· Enable people of all ages and abilities from every section of Brent’s diverse society to see cycling as a good option for everyday travel.
To make this vision a reality the Council needs your help. They need to know what you think are the most important factors in making Brent a borough that is great to cycle in. This questionnaire is the Council’s main method for gathering this information, so it is important that as many people as possible fill it in.
The questionnaire will be live from 7th November 2014 to 19th December 2014.
This questionnaire is available on-line here
and in paper form from your local library or sports centre.
Once the Council has received all the responses they will be analysed and used to shape the development of the new Cycle Strategy. The new Strategy itself will be consulted on in early summer 2015. “

We believe that every child has the right to walk, cycle or scoot to school.

I just wanted to let you all know about a free trianing opportunity for people who love cycling or walking and would like to see more every day journeys made by foot or bike:
Training available for London Transition groups
Transport is responsible for 28% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, this along with the rising costs of fuel means we need to start changing the way we think about making our every day journeys. 50% of journeys are 5 miles or less, which means that choosing to cycle or walk instead of using the car, bus or tube could have a massive impact on the country's emissions (and this isn't to mention the health benefits of getting more active).
Sustrans is offering free training and support to volunteers who would like to champion cycling or walking in their local community, workplace, school or university. Active travel champions promote local cycling or walking options or they might organise lunch time walks or group bike rides. Some decide to campaign for change locally and push for better provisions to make cycling or walking options easier. Sustrans provides training, resources and support to help.
Sustrans provides the training free of charge. If there are 4 or more people in your group that are interested then we can come to you to run the training. In return we ask you to keep us updated with your active travel activities and to try and do something every month or two.
Now is a fantastic time to try and change the default transport choice as there's lots of energy and enthusiasm for cycling because of the Games 2012.

Interesting Molly, but what's your point?
The compressed air car is just another electrically powered car (except the energy is stored as compressed air instead of a battery).
Do you have a comment on energy storage? perhaps that storing compressed air is cheaper than batteries? or maybe about actually compressed air is more dangerous in a collision / fire than batteries?
perhaps the convenient of 'refilling' in minutes rather than hours?
What about the complex heat exchangers required to maintain efficiency? or the inefficiently nature of compressing air - especially in 5 minutes. Many studies suggest the whole cycle is upto 10 times less efficient than an electric car.
I don't think we'll see these on the streets of London any time soon, perhaps they are best suited to Tata's home market.
