Both! They could alternate as mayor & deputy

Boris was first, could be that he prepared the way :?
Cycling - of course, but it is far better on a Gillott..alternative facts welcome

Does Sadiq cycle? I’ve seen Boris cycling many times.

Of course Boris got credit for many of red Ken’s schemes - although many of the routes designed under his tenure had to be changed as they didn’t work. Same with Sadiq, he’s been given credit for many schemes started under Boris.

Between them they’ve made cycling in our capital a great experience, I never thought I’d cycle there and now have a Brompton and do it as much as I can.

Looks like Boris is treating the Conservative Party Conference as decision time
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/boris-johnson-theresa-may-conservative-party-conference-tory-leadership-a8559991.html wrote:Boris Johnson fails to rule out challenging Theresa May leadership on eve of party conference

Boris Johnson has not ruled out challenging Theresa May for the Tory leadership ahead of the party’s annual conference.

The ex-foreign secretary was twice asked whether he would rule out launching a bid against the prime minister, but would not do so.

Instead he again warned the prime minister there is time for her to ditch her Chequers proposals for Brexit, having earlier in the day set out his own ideas in a sprawling newspaper article.

Although I think the headline is somewhat ambiguous, are they talking about a challenge on the eve of the party conference or are they talking about Boris failing to rule it out on the eve of the party conference.

I do wonder where London would be now if Ken hadn't been closed down by a very dodgy legal decision after a dirty tricks campaign

Khan speaks of kilometres instead of miles - the numbers are bigger!! :roll: As far as I know Khan doesn't cycle and didn't let his daughters cycle as it was too dangerous.
Khan can't have done much as there don't seem to be complaints from non cyclists. :wink: Where are these new cycle routes? Anyone know?
Boris is still cycling.
