Graffiti putting Londoners off getting on their bikes

While Mayor Boris is promising a cycling revolution in London it would appear that one of the things putting off people getting on their bikes in the capital that he might not have been aware of is graffiti.

It’s a problem in London, as it is in most cities, but you wouldn’t have thought it might be having an affect on cycling. Urban Eye, a London community led environmental design charity, would beg to differ. Most graffiti is in run-down inner city areas which have been neglected and are therefore seen as unsafe to many.
