Cycling in London

As the CEO of Canonical, I am proud of the growth of the team in London.  From a team of 5 around a kitchen table in London 10 years ago, the business has grown to 650 employees globally of which over 100 are based in London.

Like many businesses in London, one of the most popular modes of transport to the office is cycling and an even larger proportion of the team would cycle to the office if they felt it was safer than it is now.

We value employee satisfaction, health and freedom and firmly endorse the Mayor’s Vision for Cycling in London. We specifically support the cross London plans from City Hall to create new segregated routes through the heart of the city.

These plans are good for London and Londoners, making it a more attractive and productive city in which we can build a business and serve customers.

I encourage everyone to respond directly to TFL about these proposals. This particularly applies to businesses whose support for cycling is often not registered.

I know that there many business leaders like me who feel the same and will be speaking up over the coming days.
