Dear Councillor Jones,
Gilkes & Co is a surveying practice operating in London.
Our employees cycle to work.
We value safety and we want to promote active lifestyles. We also note strong evidence that more cycling increases spending in local retail businesses and lowers air pollution levels. It also reduces the number of cars on the road and the crush on the tube.
The excellent provision for cycling in the Tavistock/Torrington Place trial scheme will help us to ride safely across town. There should be more of these schemes not less. They will also make London a more attractive city in which to build and run our business.
The scheme is, on balance, excellent for our business and for London. Please ensure that it is retained.
