Letters: Cycling from A to B

Improvements in our cycling infrastructure should not just be confined to eight cities but must extend to linking villages etc (Cameron to announce £77m boost for cycling, 12 August).

Cycling is the most popular leisure activity in many European countries; it develops a tremendous amount of tourist business; and greatly improves the health and attitude of a nation. Unfortunately, however, it will be light years before Britain can reach anything like the standards of Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Switzerland.

I have cycled many long-distance routes on the continent, including fairly recently from Ashford (Kent) to Berlin (A to B); during that journey by far the most difficult and dangerous section I experienced was getting from Ashford to Harwich.

Germany has a wonderful and extensive network of traffic-free farm roads, which add greatly to the country's range of cycling facilities.
