Claims campaigners ‘are not anti-cyclist’
The leader of a campaign to stop CS11 from being built has said that her group was not behind the tacks spread at Regent’s Park last week. Tacks were found on the Outer Circle – which is on the proposed CS11 route – at 7am on Friday, following a similar discovery on the Inner Circle eight days before.
Regent’s Park Cyclists’ spokesman, Justin McKie, said: “Cyclists doing laps generally travel at around 20mph, so getting a puncture which causes loss of control will quite often leave the rider on the floor and most likely injured. If that’s in front of a car, then that’s the big concern.”
Jessica Learmond-Criqui, who is behind a crowdfunding drive to raise £150,000 for a judicial review of CS11, condemned the actions and told Ham&High
that most objectors were not ‘anti-cyclist’.
