BROMLEY, Lewisham and Greenwich has been awarded money from a £17.3m scheme to boost cycling across the borough.

Lewisham will get £656,985, Bromley bags £497,750 while Greenwich will pick up £462,000.

The money, available over three years, aims to help increase the take up of cycling and make London more easily accessible and safe on two-wheels.

It is part of a £17.3m cycling fund awarded by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to all the capital's boroughs.

Mr Johnson said: "As part of my Cycling Vision, we are engaging in a vast £1bn programme of improvements to transform cycling in London.

"Making some of this money available directly to the boroughs will help ensure that cycling developments reach communities across the capital.

"These local schemes will add to the innovative measures we’ve already announced, including enhanced cycling superhighways, urban ‘Quietways’ for more cautious cyclists, and turning some outer boroughs into mini-Hollands.

As long as we don't end up with the problems that Surrey residents encountered when they were confined to their homes for races. And for the practice runs. And for the club outings.
