The recent ride to parliament gathered 2,000 cyclists according to police estimates. The ride is just one of many that has recently been organised either to remember a cyclist tragically lost on London’s roads or to campaign for change.
I’ve attended a couple such rides myself. It was a chance to show my support and of course to cover it for London Cyclist. I’m not entirely sure how much of a difference they make but the fact that they have been receiving coverage on BBC London and the Evening Standard suggest the call for safer conditions for cycling is spreading.
I’d like to hear off you guys – have you attended such rides before? How was the experience? Do you think it has a positive impact?
