making london's towpath's safer for everyone

british waterways london has launched a new towpath code of conduct (link to download below) with a 'two tings' message aimed at all towpath users following a series of physical works to improve safety on the regent’s canal.

the code of conduct explains that pedestrians have priority over cyclists and asks them to use a bell giving 'two tings' when approaching pedestrians, pass people slowly giving them space and to ride at a sensible speed. it also asks pedestrians to listen for the 'two tings' and allow cyclists to pass.
