London Cycle & Sustainability Scheme

Guto Harri at Hay on Earth, Hay Festival 2010.

Goal: 6000 new bikes, 6000 new docking stations.

Boris is 'militant' about making dramatic increase in cycling happen - essential to push things through quickly in two years.

Number of people cycling has doubled since 2000, and still nowhere near enough. Need to get the right infrastucture to make this part of what we really do.

You need a car for the kids, underground to go the theatre at night, and can use a bike for the rest. Traffic lights can be put in by any local authority - I have five sets of traffic lights in 400m - there has to be a better way of doing this.

New buses coming in that will be 15% lower Co2 than the existing hybrid scheme and 40% less than diesel.
