  1. Ride London is a reminder that we are not in a Utopian World. Some people still have to work to feed their family and visit their sick and elderly relatives, not having the time for such folly.

    1. And the other 364 days a year people also have to do that with gridlocked roads from all the cars. Add to that the death and injury and pollution and damage from cars that happens daily, encouraging cycling, even if inconvenient, 1 day a year, might slowly slowly start to readdress the balance and help in the long run. It might take a bit longer than usual on Sunday, but all the cars the other 364 days make walking and cycling take longer than should be. It’s not even close to being balanced.

  2. Priveledges the fit and healthy i.e.those who can see balance and have energy. Try having any physical impediment to cycling..and i can tell you its well intentioned but utterly elitist. I could cycle before unexpected illness.Now i can just about walk a bit, wobbly.
