Thank you!

The event has now made history! “Thank yous” are sent to everyone who assisted with its success, especially to those who came to the peaceful protest - and those who were with us in their hearts.

A special thank you goes to the MET police for their professional and efficient management of the road closure to keep us all safe.

Coverage of the event…



What’s Next?

A letter from the organisers, Donnachadh McCarthy and Steve Routley, was handed over to Mr Peter Hendy, the London Transport Commissioner, at the end of the event. It detailed the changes that the organisers want to see done urgently to London’s transport network and for TfL itself - to stop the killing. They will be ringing Mr Hendry to arrange a follow-up meeting.

Please do continue to keep the pressure on politicians - both in London and around the UK - to improve the roads network we all share. For a liveable London. For a liveable UK.

The Three Asks…

This peaceful protest is asking for:

  1. The Mayor and Boroughs to spend at least the same per person on cycling provision as The Netherlands (the UK spends about £1.25 per person - The Netherlands spends about £33 per person);
  2. A ban on vehicles whose drivers cannot see adjacent road-users; and,
  3. A full London-wide segregated network to be built urgently.

Everyone is invited to the event, as everyone will benefit from making things better than they currently are. Ride a bicycle? Come along. Walk about town? Come along. Drive a car, bus or lorry? Come along.

Thanks go to Dave Standard and Ealing Cycling for the video.
