When TfL announced a victory for cyclists on Wednesday over the Blackfriars Bridge changes few were clapping. Encouraged by the LCC, The iBikeLondon blog and Cyclists in the City (as well as tweets on the London Cyclist twitter!) a protest was organised for 8.30am on Blackfriars Bridge.
It appears the turnout at the Blackfriars Bridge protest has been very good. It is encouraging to see so many cyclists are following the social media sites and able to respond so quickly when TfL takes a decision that majorly discourages cycling.
The picture above taken by twitter user Floella Webb shows the 20mph signs that will soon be removed to make the bridge a 30mph route with few provisions made for pedestrians and cyclists. This despite a recommendation by City of London that all bridges in central London have a 20mph limit.
If you were at the protest then we’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
