This’ll be the last cycling post I ever write on this site but just to let you know that the new “official” City Hall cycling blog in my other life as London cycling commissioner is now up and running.
It started today with an announcement of the launch date for Boris’s new cycling policy document – this Thursday, if anyone’s interested. The blog’s here.
One over-eager London Assembly member, Darren Johnson, has jumped the gun tonight and is claiming that we have published our plan already in the minutes of some obscure Transport for London committee. (Which is, of course, exactly how we do all our major policy launches!) This alleged plan then forms the basis for a searing attack on our alleged lack of ambition. Just to make clear, the document Darren’s seen is not the plan, and is nothing like the plan. I’d have been happy to tell him that, if he’d asked…
Come Thursday, I have a feeling Darren might wish he’d waited before jumping in to comment.
