How do you feel about our recommendations for cycling?
Is there anything you would like to add?
Segregated cycling routes would improve safety and encourage more people to take on cycling. Especially in the evenings / night when visibility is limited and cars drive with higher speed.
Is there anything you would like to change?
Improve segregated cycle lanes provision in Tooting Bec common. For example in the West-East direction, at present there is only a section available along Tooting Bec Road, which is disjoined and finishes abruptly opposite Franciscan Road and by Lido.
Add your like! More reaction types are coming soon.
Electric bikes are a great safety booster. As a woman, if I need to travel by night, I feel much safer cycling from train/tube station to home than by walking. It would greatly help to have parking places provisioned on the road, for the dockless e-bikes, especially in the south part of the borough like Tooting Bec, to ensure their availability.
Placing new bike stands in well-lit areas might not be enough, as not everyone feels safe to leave their bike parked in the evening/night. Improving availability of electric dockless bikes would be very beneficial (i.e. Lime, HumanForest). Using them to get home in the night from a venue / train station is great option. Especially if a route home includes common. These bikes are not always available unfortunately as there is no provision on the roads for their parking. Please provide dedicated parking bays on the roads for electric bikes.
More bike hangers on streets would help
Bike stands need to be located very carefully to avoid danger to pedestrians
Need to stamp down hard on e-bikes left causing inconvenience and danger to pedestrians
Something needs to be said about safety for cyclists at night
