Nice of them to not get the car that follows him with his briefcase and shoes in the picture. I’ve seen so many pictures of him with his helmet on his handlebars. What is with that?

Yeah, Cameron rides a bike, but that doesn’t mean his party’s manifesto is packed full of pro-cycling policies.
On current evidence, his government will promote cycling but only insofar as it doesn’t impinge on the car-driving minority: ie, no reallocation of roadspace, no strict liability, no serious attempts to change behaviour using taxation.
To be fair, this would be no different from what Labour has done throughout its years in government.
