Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea Councillor, Paget-Brown, encouraged cycling over the holidays and added: “We want all cyclists in the borough to have a safe festive season, and hopefully our top tips will help them to just that. We want to encourage more local residents to get on their bikes this festive season; to beat the traffic when doing their Christmas shopping, as well as to help burn off some calories from festive over-indulgence.
“Cycling is a great way to boost your well-being, improve the local environment and a fast, efficient and cost-effective way of getting around the borough. So whether you’re off to a carol service, doing your last minute shopping, taking presents to a friend, we want you to cycle there!”
