Opportunities to Promote Cycling

bike the strike
Cycling in London is on the increase. Periodically there are Public Transport strikes which result in more people trying cycling.

The London Cycle Campaign has reacted to the latest strike (due to close the Tube tomorrow evening for two days) by launching a simple web site giving advice to people thinking about an unfamiliar travel mode.

In Edinburgh when bus strikes have been threatened, the Council has reacted by (for instance) planning to allow drivers to park on The Meadows. The current disruption caused by the creation of the tramline is another great opportunity to encourage people to cycle in Edinburgh, but neither the Council nor tie see the merit in actively encouraging more people to leave their cars at home and try a two wheeled alternative.
