London cyclists prepare for tour of city's 10 worst junctions and one-way systems

On Saturday 12 November 2011 around 100 cyclists are expected to take part in a ride to highlight the 10 worst places to cycle in London.

See the route (updated 5pm, 11 Nov))

The ride is the brainchild of bloggers/campaigners Danny Williams and Mark Ames, and will visit one-way systems and 'nightmare' junctions including Vauxhall, Elephant & Castle, Hyde Park Corner and Kings Cross.

Several of the locations en route have witnessed fatal crashes involving cyclists in 2011, including Kings Cross and Vauxhall.

Writing on his Cyclist in the City website, Danny Williams said, "It's the same everywhere that Transport for London touches a junction or a main road. Cycling is at the bottom of the pile... and so are you if you're on a bike rather than in a car."

Writing on his iBikeLondon blog Mark Ames said, "We're expecting over 100 people to come on a ride that was originally planned as a small tour by a group of friends. If you want to see safer streets for cycling too, we'd love to welcome you too."

Ride details and marshaling

Meet at St Mark's Church, The Oval, Kennington, SE11 4PW at 10.30am on Saturday 12 November.

Ride insurance will be provided by London Cycling Campaign, and if you want to help marshal the ride, please contact us.

The link just takes you to the ggogle maps home page. I can't see the route, though presumably it will go through the King's Cross junction which I use regularly. What time do you expect to be there?

 

For your information, there used to be a cycle lane in York Way alongside King's Cross Station. they removed it when they widened the pavement!

I find Vauxhall junction much worse coming the other way. To get onto Wandsworth Rd you either have to cross over two lanes of fast traffic to the bus lane on the bridge or fight four lanes all the way round the station. Nightmare, glad I don't live there anymore
