Cycling Minister Robert Goodwill has urged cyclists to position themselves positively on the roads and make sure vehicle drivers know their intentions. Mr Goodwill cycled around the capital today, finding:
I didn't feel in danger at any time - I do cycle in London but I think if I was a London cycling virgin I would have been a little bit nervous, possibly.
When we came out of Kings Cross, we got on to some quite good segregated routes, some quiet routes I didn't even know existed. We went down Royal College Street where they have spent a lot of money... I thought that was fine and I felt safe.
There was a bizarre one in Southwark where I went across the road and there was a cycle lane coming the other way, but the cycle lane on our side started three metres later and then it was on a footpath.
