This little story got to me, especially the part I'm going to quote right here.
"While UK schools cannot ban pupils from cycling they can ban them from bringing bikes onto their property, as in this case."
"School authorities continue to insist that cycling is too dangerous, and say Sam cannot bring his bike onto the premises. They have not taken up an offer from the council to provide cycle parking."
Here is the link to the article.
Well, hopefully I'm grouchy enough now that I'll get a little bit more than usual done today.
