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.
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.
