During one hour alone last night, 1,200 people signed an e-petition calling on the Prime Minister to implement the recommendations of the 'Get Britain Cycling' All Party Parliamentary report, which was released yesterday Wednesday 24 April.
At the time of writing the number of signatories had topped 26,000. Reaching 100,000 signatures will guarantee a debate on the report's findings in Westminster.
The petition was set up by The Times journalist Kaya Burgess, one of the driving forces behind the newspaper’s 'Cities Fit for Cycling' campaign, set up after his friend and colleague Mary Bowers was left critically injured. Mary was in a collision with a lorry whilst cycling in London.
