Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu
The Cycology Cycling Club has called on Lagos State’s Ministry of Transportation to implement the non-motorised transport policy by incorporating bicycle lanes in road infrastructure.
Speaking during a visit to Shodex Garden, Ilupeju, Lagos to commemorate the one-year memorial anniversary of one of their members, Afolabi Mabogunje, Captain of Cycology, Mrs. Temitope George, explained that cycling was a means of transportation, saying it reduced carbon emission with climate change.
She said, “If people don’t feel safe to cycle, it is a problem. Safety, security of life, and property is very important. Government should double up in their efforts to keep citizens safe. Security issues on our roads are a major concern, we call on the ministry of transportation to implement the non-motorised transport policy by incorporating bicycle lanes in their road infrastructure.”
The group was also joined by other cyclists from the Cyclotron, City Cyclers and Green House Bikers clubs.

The Captain of Cyclotron, Oladimeji Daodu, described Mabogunje as a mentor, adding that cyclists were easy targets for miscreants on Lagos roads.
“As cyclists, we are 100 per cent responsible for our safety. The government should take the initiative by ensuring there is a safe path on the road designated for cyclists.
