Police Get 93-Page Guide To Cycling
ACPO consider new 2-volume, 93 page, manual to tell officers how to ride a bike...

I agree wholeheartedly with the Taxpayers Alliance.

THIS should not be allowed to happen full stop. What a waste of all our money!

Wake up ACPO. You think up all these daft things, do you think that the rank and file PC is a toddler or what?
Even Boris Johnson can cycle himself around without a 93 page guide!!!!!!!

  1. You can see where this came from, though. No officer can be excluded from being able to do the course on account of not being able to ride a bicycle. That would unfairly discriminate against certain groups.

    Imagine trying to describe in words how to ride a bike safely. Pretty difficult! It comes naturally to those who can do it because we learned while our brains hadn't set hard. I bet it wouldn't be so easy to learn as an adult!

    A question for you: does the force teach people with no driving licence to drive cars or are you expected to learn under your own steam?

    A question for the readership: explain to an adult who has never walked a step how he/she should get up out of a chair and walk the beat.
