What fantastic news to see Team GB's cycling heroes call for a 'legacy of everyday cycling' in their greatest moment. High on Olympic golds, Laura Trott and Jason Kenny were among Rio Olympians signing a letter to Theresa May demanding real action on cycle transport.
Joining Trott and Kenny were Mark Cavendish, Joanna Rowsell Shand and Becky James, as well as Sir Chris Hoy, telling May: “You were widely reported in the media as saying there will be 'no limits' on the honours that could be bestowed on our medal winners.”
“But the best way to honour the achievements of our athletes would be a legacy of everyday cycling in this country – a place where cycling is the choice form of transport for people to get around in their daily lives.”
The letter was organised by British Cycling.
