Who has signed the Change Cycling Now petition?

December 14, 2012

Have you signed up to bring about important changes to professional bike racing? These people have:

Chlamydia Horsefellow
Dusky Butterfinch
Henry Peacocks-Newways
Ronny Sausages
Steena Faafalaah
Spurious MC
Frankie Trimmings
Disco Fever
The Late Stafford Cripps MP
Yeh Youheardme

The Change Cycling Now website doesn’t ask for an email address. Any idiot can sign up using a load of daft names. So that’s exactly what I did.

Change you can't believe in

Change you can’t believe in

And Change Cycling’s petition attracted hundreds of signatures before the group had held its much-trumpeted summit to decide on its goals. So apart from the demand for independent anti-doping, those initial signatories wouldn’t have known exactly what they were signing up for.

Founded on vague goals and a magnet for fictitious names – this petition is looking a bit half-cocked, isn’t it? But at least the fella running the show knows what he’s doing. Well, I’d like to think so, although it’s possible that Jaimie Fuller didn’t quite understand I was being ironic when he retweeted me.
