Fewer cycling to work
8:46am Monday 2nd December 2013 in Waltham Forest
Many cyclists have stopped cycling to work following a recent spate of deaths on London's roads, according to a BBC survey.
A total of 1,070 adults were contacted, with a quarter saying they were regular cyclists and one in five admitting they had stopped using the mode of transport to work.
The poll also found 20% of cyclists said they had been involved in a collision.
A total of six cyclists were killed on London's roads between November 5 and 18.
Transport for London (TfL) insists cycling was not getting more dangerous in the capital.
TfL's statistics show that there were 68 deaths from 2008 to 2012 and 82 in the preceeding five-year period.
But 68 per cent of cyclists said they disagreed that London's roads were safe for cycling.
