Answered By: 
The Mayor

Andrew Gilligan was appointed as my Cycling Commissioner because his views on cycling are closely aligned with my own. He is committed to delivering my Vision for Cycling in London, which will provide safer streets for cyclists and encourage more people to ride their bike in the capital. Any such cycling articles are authorised by my office.
