Barnet Council has been handed more than £700,000 to spend on improving cycling facilities in the borough.

Boris Johnson and Transport for London this week announced additional funding of £17million split across the capital’s 32 boroughs.

Barnet is set to receive £717,500 of that total for spending on training for cyclists and improved facilities, including parking areas.

Transport charity Sustrans’ welcomed news of the cash injection. London director German Dector-Vega said: “Borough support for cycling is arguably the most important as it gives local communities, especially children and young adults, the training, safety awareness and facilities needed to gain cycling confidence.”

Whoopee, Barnet doesn't like cycling.
Not enough money to change this and so it will be wasted.

Why put bicycle parking but no bike lanes. No ASL's. Not allowing cycling in Dollis Brook. (not that anyone cares)

And if you need training to ride a bicycle, you shouldn't be on one.
