The Liberal Democrats in Bromley are pushing for an improved transport system in the borough, revolving around cycling.
Only 1.1 per cent of journeys in the borough are made by bike, compared to the two per cent London average, while spending on cycling is just £1.89 per person per year compared to the £10 recommended in a parliamentary report.
London mayoral candidate Caroline Pidgeon is campaigning to ensure cycling is finally safe and appealing to Londoners of all ages.
LibDem spokesman Jonathan Coulter said: ”The case for cycling is simple: the more journeys we can make by bicycle, the less the congestion on the roads and the healthier we shall be.
“But this is going to require large and long-term changes in the council’s priorities.”
