Live blog: Genius bike bodge, Scottish Transport Minister promises cycling infrastructure investment and more

All today's news from the site and beyond as we start a new week...

Simon joined as news editor in 2009 and is now the site’s community editor, acting as a link between the team producing the content and our readers. A law and languages graduate, published translator and former retail analyst, he has reported on issues as diverse as cycling-related court cases, anti-doping investigations, the latest developments in the bike industry and the sport’s biggest races. Now back in London full-time after 15 years living in Oxford and Cambridge, he loves cycling along the Thames but misses having his former riding buddy, Elodie the miniature schnauzer, in the basket in front of him.

Sean Conway needs a haircut, I'm all for a beard and I've often glanced over at another mans facial fur and thought I'd look good with a viking length plaited beard and undercut, but seriously, that kid looks like he's been stuck on an island with Tom Hanks for fifteen years!


Aw and how I'm thinking of dogs with their heads out of car windows..

Grayson Perry's judgement is more of an aesthetic one than a road safety one which befits an artist, I suppose.

The glory of cycling in silence is as much for those around the cyclist, who are unaffected by earphones.

Whether one wants silence oneself is one's own business. Whilst walking in the hills does Mr. Perry keep mute , rather than spoil his appreciation of the soughing of the wind? Do his companions have to keep quiet?

I fear he is yet another cyclist telling other cyclists how they ought to do it.
