Cyclists in London are planning a “die-in” outside the Chancellor’s office this weekend to protest against lack of funding for safe cycling.
Stop Killing Cyclists, the protest group, is demanding “investment in cycling and walking for a healthy future”.
They will meet at 1pm outside the National Gallery before walking (or cycling) to Horse Guards Parade outside the Treasury for the protest from 2pm.
“We demand the Chancellor substantially increases funding for cycling and walking, rising to 10% of the UK transport budget by the end of this parliament,” they said.
“Cycling and walking are an essential part of tackling these problems and creating a healthy and sustainable UK.
“However successive governments have chronically underfunded active travel and [under] current spending plans would further reduce the cycling budget to less than £1 per person in England,” they added.
