Central London was overrun by 10,000 cyclists on Saturday the 28th April, as the biggest bike protest ever seen in the capital took to the streets.
The mayoral candidates Brian Paddick and Jenny Jones, as well as Simon Hughes, the Lib Dem deputy leader, joined the ride from Hyde Park to Blackfriars. The protest called on the candidates in next week’s local and mayoral elections to make concrete pledges to make the streets safer for cyclists.
In London, despite the steady rain, cyclists of all shapes and sizes – old and young, male and female, lycra-clad and fancy-dressed – took over Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square, Parliament Square and Victoria Embankment, chanting for safer streets.
