At the time of writing, 13 London cyclists have died this year, and 5 of those deaths over 9 days in November. Enough is enough. Cyclists do not need to travel around our city with fear for their lives. TFL and the Mayor for London do have the right idea. But, as plans are drawn up, consultations are carried out, and meetings are had, Londons roads continue to be unsafe, and cyclists are losing their lives. We are calling for urgent action from Boris Johnson and the Cycling Commissioner Andrew Gilligan to accelerate their plans, and to be clear about their intentions for cycle safety in London.
I’m not one to post up requests but I seem to have a few followers and as a fellow cyclist I feel it’s my duty to help try and change what has been happening in London over the last few days.
If you could spare a couple of minutes to sign the petition linked above then that would be awesome.
