Tolstoy, there's plenty of opportunities to meet me if you so desire.
And (I assume you're having a dig at me asking who the OP is) I think it's only manners for someone who's asking for your opinion to tell you what interest they themselves have in the subject. Esp. when that person describes themselves as a "we" (which I assume means some sort of body - which almost by definition implies a collection of people with a specific opinion/interest/set of objectives)
If this is an unreasonable stance in other peoples eyes, so be it. However, I am interested in bike safety, and, if I knew who the OP was, I'd probably be interested in joining in this discussion.
I'd see it as a bit like cold calling. If someone comes to my door and asks me Qs without telling me who they are, then they probably go away without any answers. However, if they introduce themselves and explain what they're here for, the outcome will probably be very different, and more satisfactory for us both.
Out of the three people who've posted in reply to OP, I seem to be the only one who expresses an interest in the topic they're trying to talk about. Sorry if that somehow irks you.
...if you press it, they will come.
