    Just a note: The British use the word "pavement" to mean what Americans call the "sidewalk". So this
    Transport for London hopes there will be less cycling on the pavement.
    translated to American would read, "Transport for London hopes there will be less cycling on the sidewalk."
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    I thought Boris had been doing this in London for quite a while... it's a long term strategy and while it's got its opponents, it kind of hard to argue that cars should have more access to the city center when all that means is more pollution and less effective movement of people.

    1. this is a UK outside of London?
    2. seems to be a pro-health movement in the UK recently? especially after the recent alcohol-consumption studies.
