Support better infrastructure for cycling in London

We’re at a crucial point in debates over London’s transport infrastructure. Transport for London has put forward some strong plans for improving the infrastructure with the proposed Cycle Superhighway plans which will go a long way towards getting more people on their bikes around London.

Unfortunately London First and the City of London are trying to raise doubts about the initiative despite research that points to the benefits for all inhabitants. Research conducted in New York points to car traffic as actually moving faster in some cases after the installation of cycle lanes, and that’s before we consider the benefits of improved health for cyclists and city residents as well as providing a more appealing urban environment. 

London Cycle Campaign has created an online form letter that allows you to quickly show your support for the proposal. I’d encourage you all to take part as this will hopefully galvanise Transport for London into action and redress the imbalance in transport investment London has seen over the last 70 years.
