When David Cameron came to power and became the Prime Minister of Britain, he made a promise that Britain will undergo a cycling revolution. He made an announcement on the 12th of August, 2013 that this revolution will remove all kinds of obstacles for the British cyclists in the years to come.

In a plan to get around one fifth of all commuters to get into cycling by 2020, Bristol’s city council has announced a fund worth £35 million plan.

Among its major initiatives, the council plans to use its funds and other grants to build commuter “corridors” towards north, north west, east and south.

John Degenkolb managed to win Gent-Wevelgem by half a wheel despite the number of crashes that had occurred on Sunday.
