Cllr Martin Whelton, Merton Council’s cabinet member for Regeneration, Environment and Housing, said: “Safety is the main concern of people considering cycling in the capital and a solid of understanding of what you can and can’t do on the road is important as well as giving you confidence. We want to encourage more residents to live and work in the borough and making our roads safer for cyclists is a priority for the council.”

People are also encouraged to see if their employer is signed up for the Bike2Work scheme where they can save up to 42% on a new bike. For details, click here.
