Not only are more children than ever before being driven to school, but the CTC's BikeClub - which aims to get young people on two wheels - have found consistently falling levels of cycling amongst children.
Sometimes we cycle campaigners get a bit over-excited about the purported 'cycling revolution' taking place in the UK at the moment, but to me it seems there's not much to shout about just because a couple of extra middle aged men are riding their bikes more when kids across the country are not riding their bikes at all.
As Whitney Houston once warbled, they are our future, after all.
Let the children play! Future cycling levels in the UK depend on it...
