On Friday of last week, over a thousand cyclists staged a “die in” for fifteen minutes outside of the Department of Transportation Headquarters in London. The protest was organized to demand transportation funds for safer cycling after 6 people on bicycles were killed in a two week period.
While some have complained about the tactics, others like the BBC have noted that it was a similar movement in the 1970s helped pave the way for the safe street movement in the Netherlands. Either way, we wish our cycling friends across the pond the best of luck in their efforts. Check their Facebook Page here.
