Ride London 2023: Same Dangerous Route Chosen
Once again commercial constraints and community pressure has kept the Ride London 2023 route materially unchanged from 2022. This was a dangerous route in places in 2022, poorly marshalled. I made my thoughts on the matter clear in May.
With this decision made what the organisers need to work on is this
- Risk assessment of the more dangerous sections of the route, especially for higher-speed riders
- Proper marshall instruction at danger points. Perhaps even pay some of the marshalls (more) to do a specific safety job.
- Clean/Sweep the road
- Get Local councils to repair holes in the road. You can’t see them coming when behind 3 people all going at 30mph.
- Consider making speed bumps safer. Again you can’t see them and less experienced group riders ahead might not signal their impending arrival.
I probably won’t do it in any case.
