“The caMden stand is a great example of the type of innovative solution to crime that can be made reality given the right support. As Mayor… I firmly believe that if we drive out so called minor crime, such as bike theft, then we will be able to get a firm grip on more serious crime. In the process we will also make cycling in London more attractive, which will help to improve the environment for all of us. I’ve asked Transport For London to do all they can to support such initiatives.” (Boris Johnson, May 2008).
Also, Dr. Kulveer Ranger, Director of Transport Policy for the GLA has said: “It is great that this multi-agency approach is working to bring design forward into dealing with a real problem for cyclists and the cycling community whilst at the same time being innovative in the approach” (September 2008). Rhiannon Hill (Dr. Ranger’s assistant) shared Bikeoff research to assess bike hire schemes planned for London.
