Transport for London has now unveiled detailed proposals for two proposed cycle routes across London.  One runs east-west from Tower Gateway to Paddington and on to Acton via the A40 flyover.  The other runs north-south from Elephant & Castle to Kings Cross.

Lindsay's story

Lindsay's life was transformed by an accident that left her paralysed from the chest down. Now, with the help of an inclusive cycling centre, her fitness levels have improved so much she has become a personal trainer.

Seven years ago, Lindsay had a motorbike accident. “A roundabout at 20mph, I didn’t think it could happen like that. I broke my back, leaving me paralysed from the chest down. I was thirty-one, in the army reserves and pushing my body hard. I was at my prime.”
“I’d always done a lot of running, circuit training and going to the gym” Lindsay explains.
