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.
