    RE London Mayor. You have to think that the “we can do everything by bike” mantra has to stop somewhere. Reading the article, the data points sound like “6 bottles of soda moved per month by bike” … does the author realize just how much cargo gets moved around the city? Agreed: we can do a lot of things on bike. Like make most daily personal trips. however moving enough freight to run a city is not one of them.
