IT IS all very well for David Harvey-George (Letters, 13 February) to complain that in Germany there is room only for eight bikes booked in advance on regional trains, and that the extensive network of cycle paths is inadequate and dangerous. May I point out that in this country there is virtually no cycle-path network at all, and what there is is inadequate and dangerous. In addition to this, British Rail restricts carriage of bicycles to one on many regional railways on a first-come, first- served basis. Personally, I would rather pay my pounds 3.50, be able to go on a cycling holiday with a friend, and take my chances on Germany's cycle paths.
