LET'S MAKE LONDON A BICYCLE-FRIENDLY CITY!
Cycling benefits our health, community, environment and economy.
City streets and roads should be safe for all users, including riders of all ages and abilities.
Well-designed cycling infrastructure results in more cyclists, a cleaner environment, and a more livable, prosperous city.
The best cycling network is an integrated network that connects neighbourhoods to major routes and the destinations people want to go.
What do we propose?
The City invest in protected bicycle lanes on major routes. Such routes will result in more cyclists (and thus fewer cars and less wear-and-tear on roads), healthier citizens, and more prosperous local businesses and communities, and so will, in fact, save public money in the long term.
Link protected lanes to quiet neighbourhood routes and the Thames Valley Parkway through intersections designed to make all users safe.
City Council appoint a representative to develop and implement such a cycling plan.
Lower speed limits and other traffic-calming measures on side streets to make routes safe for cyclists and pedestrians.
Peace of Mind
Employers provide secure bike parking and develop incentives to encourage their employees to cycle to work.
