PUBLISHED: 12:30 06 September 2018 Eugene Regis, London Cycling Campaign Whenever people ask what legacy the Olympics bought to London, I think back to July 2012 when the Euston Road had a so-called “Zil lane” in it. As people who cycled were among the only non-official vehicles allowed to use the lanes, I started riding to work. This was after not riding a bike for about a decade. I had a car and used the Tube.

It is interesting to note that parking was even allowed in Waterloo Way in those days.
