The report also calls for the Mayor to respond to failing cycling safety measures by adopting new and innovative ways to keep riders safe and reduce accidents. 

Recommendations include appointing a commissioner to champion cycling, adding more space on the roads for cyclists and timetabling an action plan for the east-west cycle corridor, to name three.

The report also called for the Mayor to vamp up the popularity of cycling as it is currently estimated that only 7% of journeys in the capital are made on bikes.
