LAST week the mayor of London announced the funding allocations for his 13 Biking Boroughs.
Sadly, he is only giving a tiny amount of money which will achieve little of substance for people cycling in outer London.
The total of £4million is a fraction of what the outer London boroughs were due to spend on cycling before the mayor cancelled funding for the London Cycling Network and cut the money he gives boroughs for local transport.
The mayor expects that around two-thirds of the new cycling journeys in London will be made in outer London, yet he is spending 65 times more money on superhighways into inner London and cycle hire for central London.
If he is serious about promoting cycling, he should be providing far more funding to ensure Londoners feel confident on their bikes, which will encourage more cycling within the capital.
London really doesn't need a zone one cycling mayor.
