Cycle safety campaigners are taking to the streets for a third time this evening, to call for more space for bicycles on the capital's roads.
One campaigner who won't be taking part is John Hartley, who is in a wheelchair with a broken leg and broken arm after a collision in Holborn.
Cyclists have been tweeting about this evening's event:
London IS too hard to make #spaceforcycling overnight. That's why we MUST make cycle layout No1 priority when roads/junctions are rebuilt!
