Following his trip to Copenhagen back in the summer, Boardman was able to get cycling minister Robert Goodwill to join him on a return visit to see how a truly cycling city functions.
The minister said he was ‘blown away’ by what he’d seen in the Danish capital and admits that the UK is at least three decades behind in terms of safe cycling provision.
