"Die-In" bike safety peaceful protest on Blackfriars Rd. today

Jump to last reply

From The Londonist "Things to do in London today" http://tinyurl.com/lzrsey7

"This peaceful protest is asking for:

The Mayor and Boroughs to spend at least the same per person on cycling provision as The Netherlands (the UK spends about £1.25 per person – The Netherlands spends about £33 per person);
A ban on vehicles whose drivers cannot see adjacent road-users; and,
A full London-wide segregated network to be built urgently."

I'd go if in the neighborhood. The I find the sight of bicycles sharing lanes with buses alarming. Not there's a lot of room to widen the streets.
