Cyclists are being reminded to show consideration for walkers on London's canals, and remember to give Two Tings of their bell to warn pedestrians that they're coming.
LCC communications officer said, "It only take a second to give a warning to someone walking ahead, and in the narrow space it make sense to moderate your speed.
The Two Tings campaign was launched in 2007, and has been successful in reducing conflict between walkers and cyclists on the Grand Union and Regent's Canal waterways.
