Posted by Rob Quigley on July 11, 2013 0 Comments

Due to two recent fatalities and serious incidents involving cyclists in London the London Cycling Campaign have organised a protest cycle for tomorrow, Friday July 11th. 

The cycle begins at 6pm at Tower Hill and will journey to Aldgate (approx. 20 minute cycle).

As I am in London at the moment I will be joining this cycle to call for better and safer cycling infrastructure in London. It’s harrowing to hear of a cyclist’s death in London when they can be avoided.


Protest Cycle Details:

  • Meet 6pm for 6.15pm start at Tower Hill (where it meets Minories)
  • There is a google map available of the route
  • The protest ride will last approximately 20-30 minutes, including a brief stop at the junction of A11 Whitechapel Road and A1202 Commercial Street to pay respects at the place where last week’s victim died
  • The ride will be marshalled by LCC staff and volunteers and will finish at Altab Ali Park around 6.30pm
  • Twitter hashtag #space4cycling 

More information is available on the London Cycling Campaign website

Hopefully this will go some way to making the streets safer for everyone.
