Lib Dem Council Leader Barry Aspinell will be launching a bike scheme later in the year for staff and councillors.

Barry said "I'm a keen cyclist myself and I am sure many of our staff will welcome the opportunity to cycle in to work rather than drive so they can get fit and do their bit to save the planet!"

Similar schemes, were staff lease bikes from their employer, have been in place in other councils and government departments for many years.

Tory leader Louise McKinlay, naturally "rubbished the idea" according to press reports!

Barry confirmed that the cost will ne neutral to the council.
