London Cycling Campaign issues rallying call
On 28 April thousands of people will cycle together along a traffic free route in central London to send a message to politicians – including mayoral candidates – that cycling should be safer and more inviting for everyone. This family-friendly event, with feeder rides from every London borough, is being organised by the London Cycling Campaign.
With 30,000 signatures on its ‘Love London, Go Dutch’ petition - which calls on mayoral candidates to pledge to make cycling in London safer and more inviting - the London Cycling Campaign says that cycling safety has permeated the media and politics like never before. The Campaign says that three out of the four main mayoral candidates’ manifestos even contain language that specially recognises Dutch cycling success.
The London Cycling Campaign has scored the four main candidates’ manifestos on their promises for cycling, with Boris Johnson, the current mayor, in last place. Mr Johnson is the only candidate not to refer to Dutch-quality cycling in his manifesto.
