Labour Isn’t Listening, The Liberal Democrats Are: Making Cycling More Affordable

Islington has one of the highest rates of bike theft in London. The council should act to make bike parking safer.

Yet local cyclists are being charged extortionate amounts for secure parking: cycle hangar spaces cost £107.25 per year. But it costs just £25 a year to park an electric vehicle even though bikes take up a fraction of the same space. It’s right to support climate-friendly vehicles — but what about bikes?

Commenting on the charges Maxx Turing, a spokesperson for Islington Liberal Democrats, said: 

"This isn't fair. It should never cost more to park a bike than any kind of car. Let’s fix this."
