I took over responsibility for Transport in Hackney today. Pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport users remain at the top of the movement hierarchy. Private cars are still a very long way down at the bottom. This is a .

The striking thing here is not just the volume of people cycling, but also the speed at which they are doing so. No fear of motor traffic means no need for urgency

Unless we know the precise circumstances of this incident, I think it’s a little distasteful to blame the victim

The merry-go-round of ministers with responsibility for cycling continues... A pity to lose as he seemed genuinely engaged with the issues

Very, disappointed that, after someone shatters his pelvis in an accident in , describes it as 'cyclist learns the hard way'. I can't quite believe that a body devoted to the enjoyment of the park is quite so callous.

So much about Holland Park Ave. WE ARE NOT REMOVING ALL THE TREES. 2 big trees, neither in a good condition, are proposed to be taken out, along with a small number of small trees at Notting Hill Gate. WE'LL PLANT MORE NEW TREES IN THE AREA THAN WE TAKE OUT.

The fast cyclists you claim to be so concerned about? They are there now, and they will still be there if nothing gets built. The women on trikes, young children and the elderly? Not so much.

If you’re droning on and on about “cycle superhighways encouraging fast cyclists”, and opposing cycleways for that reason, this is the kind of cycling you’re actually preventing

Love this, normal people in normal clothes who simply want to travel without cars.
