London has done a number of good things thus far with the Olympics...The way they have gone about getting people around isn't one of them.

In credit to Vancouver, they strongly urged people to leave their cars at home while the Olympics were on -- which people for the most part did at least.
Public transit, walking and bicycle usage went up.
You were able to ride a bike in the special Olympic lanes (as far as I know)...From what I'm told of those in London you can't cycle in them.

Although I highly doubt those taking part in THIS critical mass ride were riding to protest the poor Olympic transportation -- it has received some attention.
Most of what I read while the arrests were taking place were siding with the cyclists (at least in the British media I read)

  • North America is eventually going to figure out that, for all the right reasons, we need more bicycles on our roads. Dust off your bicycle and go cycling. And if the gas-burning dinosaurs start to crowd you, it's your road and you paid for it. Take the lane for yourself.
