Today dozens pro-cycling protesters from around London took part in a ‘festive joyride’ that spilled out into lanes used by drivers.
Steven Edwards, 60, a guitar teacher and Extinction Rebellion activist from Camden, North London, told MailOnline: ‘I’m here to protest about the insane ripping out of this cycle lane.
‘It needs to be extended and expanded – I can’t think of anything worse than to remove it. Cycling is beneficial in every possible way. There are big opponents though, including taxi drivers.’
David Lincoln, 53, a community nurse from Islington, called for similar routes to be installed on every major road in the capital.
