Oi! You lot! Knock it off!Charlie is trying to offer a solution to a major problem. It should not be dismissed out of hand. Lots of countries are much more bike friendly than the UK. Bikes not only prevent lots of environmental problems, they also help to keep people fit. There are probably many additional benefits.Perhaps Charlie's idea will have to be adjusted to eliminate some concerns. So what? It's a concept, and it should be studied carefully.Charlie, one thought. Would it be possible to make the system "one way". If so, you could blow air into the "tubes" so that the cyclists always have a gentle breeze behind them. I suppose the speed of the "breeze" could also be increased on uphill sections.The cost of producing the "breeze" might not be insignificant, but if it gets people to use the system, it could be well worth it.
