A particular outrage was that the defendants raised dishonesty […]

Cycle to the Lane

by Kevin O'Sullivan | February 2, 2018 | Uncategorized

it’s exactly two years since i first suggested to Spurs that the way to tackle the transport nightmare awaiting them when they open their swanky new ground in August 2018 is to encourage their fans to cycle to the ground. Since then , dockless hire bikes have exploded in the capital making this idea even […]

Alliston Case

by Kevin O'Sullivan | September 18, 2017 | Uncategorized

Charlie Alliston was sentenced today to 18 months for ‘wanton and furious’ cycling resulting in the tragic death of a pedestrian Mrs Kim Briggs. Alliston was rightly jailed in my view but this sentence does not remotely compare with the laughably lenient sentences handed out to motorists over the years who kill / seriously injure […]

Hire bike scheme great for a one way trip !

It occurred to me some time ago that the hire bike scheme (on which I’m campaigning to be fully extended into zone 2, more of that another time) is perfect when you’re only going one way by bicycle. Last night, I was at a presentation at my son’s school in Pimlico and knew me and him […]
