I’m not a figures man, but I agree with radii8 totally. In fact, London Cycling Campaign’s ‘Go Dutch’ campaign is precisely about this, making dedicated space for cyclists, which is safe. Many European cities manage it, I don’t see why London can’t. with the mayoral election only days away, we should be asking the candidates whether they want to maintain the status quo or, better, encourage people out of cars and onto bikes by making segregated and safe cycling facilities like they have in Holland and elsewhere. Boris bikes aren’t going to get beyond the current users until our streets are safe for less confident cyclists too.
