London’s popular mayor will also be on hand to launch LCC’s Central London Cycle Guide, the first in a series of guides covering the whole London area.

The guides are being produced in a joint effort by the LCC and the mayor’s Transport for London department. The remaining guides will be published in Spring 2002.

Available free of charge, the maps are aimed at getting people back on their bikes in the capitol city.
