In fairness he said they should pay some kind of road tax... The fact there is no such thing as road tax doesn't mean it can't be introduced!

I would be happy for cyclists to not have to pay... But very much believe some kind of system in which they can be held accountable for acting irresponsibly needs to happen.

I've seen way too many idiots for it to continue unchecked. Only the other day I had to swerve as two pulled accross me at a roundabout from the completely opposite lane they should have been in! I was on the far left lane of 3 and was indicating when they tried to shoot past the outside of me and across as I started turning...

I was going to suggest Beijing, but then I read your final sentence and, as we all know, there are only 9 million bicycles in Beijing. That's a fact.
So we're looking for somewhere with even more bicycles than Beijing. Great quiz, by the way.

As an aside Anfield has (or at least had in 2017) the best cycle parking of any Premier League ground - manned all game (and not on a "mind your bike, Mister?' basis).

OK, ten million is an egaggeration but suffice it to say that you can't move for the things. It's not Peking or Liverpool.

Oh. It's probably because I've linked it from my google photos. Anyway, it's a picture of some parked bikes.
