London’s done it, now it’s about time Scotland had a full-time Cycling Commissioner

£770million over six years is about 3 times the annual outlay on cycling in Scotland, distributed via Sustrans.  Given that London has about twice the population, the per capita annual expenditure is about 50% greater.

Cities and towns in Scotland need that same rate of expenditure!
