England’s capital saw a tragic end to 2013 for cyclists with six cyclists killed on London’s roads within two weeks. The events of November 2013 placed the safety of London’s cyclists under the spotlight forcing immediate attention and recognition from Transport for London and the Government. Whilst Mayor Boris Johnson asserted that, despite these cyclist deaths, London’s cycling safety has improved, the reality felt by cyclists is that there is severe lack of adequate and safe routes through the city.

In December 2013, a poll found that of 1,070 adults, 20% had been in a cycling collision and one in five cyclist respondents said they had stopped cycling to work following the deaths. The poll also found that 68% of cyclists disagreed that London’s roads are safe to cycle on. The cycling community in London have since lobbied London councils to make roads safer.

BMX I'm currently building. Bit of a Frankenbike at present, but it rides like a rocketship on the downhill sections and drop-offs!

London is preparing to welcome the return of the prestigious Tour De France to its streets on 7th July 2014 to mark the end of the British leg of the race. The cyclists will arrive in London via Epping Forest and finish on The Mall against the backdrop of Buckingham Palace. The route through the heart of the city will take the elite cyclists past the most spectacular sights the capital can offer, from Tower Bridge to Westminster Abbey.

The event is seven years to the day since London welcomed the Tour for the first time in 2007 for the Grand Depart. The lasting positive impact this had on the cycling community made the opportunity to host the world’s largest road cycling event for a second time one not to be missed. It was estimated not only to have generated £73 million to the London economy but it also encouraged the implementation of cycling schemes and events that have  successfully increased the number of cyclists in the capital by 79% from 2001 to 2011.

In the same way that a car must fulfil certain criteria to be deemed roadworthy, there are also some legal requirements for a bicycle to be  allowed on the road. This article will consider what is legally required, what is recommended in the Highway Code and the legal position regarding having a bell fitted on a bicycle.

Under The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989 and its subsequent amendments, it is illegal to cycle on a road without lights and reflectors after dark. Cyclists must have a white front light and red rear lights lit at night, have their cycle fitted with a red light reflector on the rear and each pedal needs two amber light reflectors, one on the leading edge and the other on the trailing edge. The finer details of the regulations such as the size, positioning and manufacturing standard of the lights and reflectors are rarely enforced however any illegality, regardless of how minor, may be regarded as contributory negligence if there was a night time accident.
