You might see more Brompton bicycles after lockdown!

There was a report today in which Transport for London indicated London could see a tenfold increase in cycling. I can't say I'm surprised!

When the restrictions on lockdown are eased there is going to be an expectation that more tubes and buses will be running to help with social distancing. Right! I wager that all of these will be mega busy. For me personally - someone who dislikes public transport at the best of times - I would rather saddle up a pony, assuming I could find one, if there was no other way of travelling a fair distance.

This might all result in the construction of wider pavements to accommodate walking routes and cycle lanes. The one positive from the dreaded 'C' word (if one can even suggest such a notion without offending) is that there might be a drive to actually increase the number of routes available to cyclists and walkers. Let's see how this one develops.

Keep safe people!
