Transport for London is running a series of marshaled bike rides to encourage people to try commuting to work on a bike. The "Cycle Friday" events are free group commuter rides into central London using six different routes including one from Greenwich to St Paul's Cathedral in the City of London.
Four marshals from the London Cycling Campaign will be on each route to help cyclists who are new to rush hour bike riding. If you want to take part, turn up tomorrow with your bike at 8.00 am in Cutty Sark Gardens. The Cycle Friday rides will be taking place every Friday until October 2nd.
Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said “Cycle Fridays are a brilliantly simple way of giving thousands of commuters the confidence to get cycling. I’m sure that when they see how much of a fun, healthy and convenient experience it can be they will be hooked.”.
