Those campaigning against a ban on cycling along the Duke’s Head Passage into London’s Bushy Park received a boost this week when Vince Cable expressed his support. The former MP for Twickenham urged people to sign a petition asking for the decision to be reversed.
‘No cycling’ signs were put up at either end of Duke’s Head Passage in April, but campaigners argue that the 500-metre long path from Hampton Village is the safest route by which cyclists can enter Bushy Park.
A Freedom of Information request put in to the Royal Parks revealed that there have been no reported accidents involving cyclists and few complaints.
