FINAL UPDATE: This route is now open to cyclists! http://youtu.be/C3KlhgQDXyo
Update: Even with this announcement http://bit.ly/14Jv6kX
“On Theobalds Road, Vernon Place and Bloomsbury Way, my Cycling Commissioner has suggested to the highway authority, the London Borough of Camden, a number of short-term measures which could open the westbound contraflow bus lane to cyclists and make it safe.” Boris and Gilligan have still done nothing.
Recorded 090713 I broke the law and legally deserved the ticket but morally I’m simply looking for a safe route to work. The Police have been duly criticised for handing out FPNs on this road. Rather than target the vehicles that are regularly killing cyclists.
