Email now to oppose cycling ban

London Cycling Campaign (LCC) today emailed this video to all its e-list members.

Considerate Cycling rather than No Cycling should be the policy on the South Bank and LCC ask you to email cycling@lambeth.gov.uk objecting to the recent signs that have been erected banning cycling.

Lambeth residents may also wish to email their local Councillors and MP whose contact details are here .

It's worth noting that support for a considerate cycling policy here comes from the local Living Streets (formerly Pedestrian Association) group too.

I was attempting to use City Beast's map

of the cyclist casualties in London to emphasise the danger of pushing cyclists onto the main road, but since I'm not a local, I'm not sure how much of the South Bank is used. Clearly, cyclists going North are pushed into the Park Plaza / Westminster Bridge Road area where there have been at least six serious injuries and one fatality.The question is, how many injuries have been caused by cyclists on the South Bank? I suspect very few, if any, but I don't know.
