Event Description

Join us to discuss London's ambitious new cycling plans with motoring journalist Dan Trent and GLA ‘cycling czar’ Andrew Gilligan

Tuesday, June 4, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Tickets: £6.00

In March 2013, Boris Johnson appointed Andrew Gilligan as London’s Cycling Commissioner and launched "The Mayor's Vision for Cycling in London", a document outlining plans for £1 billion of improvements to make cycling safer and easier in London, and improve air pollution and inner city congestion. Specific plans include construction of a 15 mile "Crossrail for bikes" running from the West London suburbs into East London, ‘quiet lanes’ for commuters in backstreets, more segregated bike lanes and limitations on HGV movements in the capital. But in these times of acute austerity, are the investment plans realistic? And with 14 cycling deaths in London last year and two already this year, are the plans ambitious enough to entice more commuters to ditch their Oyster Cards and hop on their hybrids? Join us to discuss the ambitious new cycling infrastructure proposals with motoring journalist Dan Trent and GLA ‘cycling czar’ Andrew Gilligan. After the event we invite you to stay on for drinks at the HUB until 9pm, before moving on to a nearby bar.
