As cyclists here in London await the decision on who has won the 2012 London Mayoral Election today it is worth bearing in mind what can happen to a cycling friendly city when an anti-cycling Mayor gets in charge.
Chatter aplenty today about the Bounty of Boris: the Superhighway and the cycle hire scheme. Boris’s great contributions to the city in his first term as The Mayor Of London (why all those caps?) Both schemes have their detractors and they are certainly not without their shortcomings. However, we must recognise that these are special times for cyclists in the capital.
