Dope Pedallers?

I have just had notification of the 2009 rates for JPs' expenses. Subsistence has gone up by pennies (it's £7.45 for an absence of over 4 hours, which just about covers a pie and a pint, so fair enough) and the car allowance for larger cars has dropped from 60p a mile to 55p. I have no beef with this (the figures are independently calculated anyway) as the 60p rate was brought in when unleaded was about 115p a litre.
The bicycle rate is now 27p a mile (no, I am not tempted) which has, I think, been reduced in line with the car rates. Extraordinary!
