Is London Most Unsafe City to Ride Bicycle on the Road?



Most major cities around the world are not that safe if you are an inexperienced bicyclist or not familiar with the road system of the city.  Some cities are definitely safer and more bicyclist friendly than other.

A London cyclist films what goes on around the city with his helmet cam and posted a compilation video on YouTube.  It is pretty shocking to see how aggressive some drivers can get toward bicyclist.  I'm sure they all have their side of the story.  Perhaps, this guy wasn't riding in a safe manner or not properly yielding to the vehicles.  But it doesn't seem to justify some of the hostility seen in the video.

Here is what the cyclist commented on the video:
 "As a road user in all forms -- I drive a car as well, I walk -- I'm interested in road safety and I think anything I can do to educate people or highlight issues I see as positive."

Earlier this week the Mayor of London vowed to make 33 of London's junctions safer following the deaths of six cyclists in a fortnight.

"The cycling revolution will continue," Boris Johnson said whilst addressing a cycling safety conference in London.

"This is not the time to slacken off or give up because if we get this right, the prize is huge. London should be in many ways a perfect city to ride a bike."

Check out the video and see what you think:
