Low carbon cycle scheme launched in London

Low carbon cycle scheme launched in London
A new cycling scheme has been launched in the city of London that could help reduce the carbon footprint of the capital's transport sector.

Between August 14th and October 2nd, a series of bike rides will take place to encourage people to ride their bikes to work on Fridays.

Organised by the mayor of London and Transport for London, the scheme - called Cycle Fridays - will see rides departing every Friday at 8am from six different locations around the capital, including Brixton, Ravenscourt Park and Greenwich.

London mayor Boris Johnson said: "Whether it's Monday, Wednesday, or Sunday I tend to go by bike but, although it is safe and getting safer, I fully appreciate that some people find it a little daunting at first.

"Cycle Fridays are a brilliantly simple way of giving thousands of commuters the confidence to get cycling."

The initiative is part of a summer cycling drive in London that intends to increase the number of bike riders by 400 percent by 2025.
