Over 1,000 cyclists lie down in the street in memory of fallen riders

Over 1,000 British cyclists lay down with their bicycles on a central London street to protest dangerous road conditions.
The 15-minute Stop Killing Cyclists “die-in” blocked the roads surrounding the Transport for London headquarters.
Fourteen cyclists have died on the streets of London this year—including six fatalities between November 5 and 18. Protesters are asking that 600 million pounds (nearly $1 billion) per year be spent on safer roads for cyclists, including segregated bike routes.
The event was modeled after a similar one in Holland.
