Eurostar appears to have delayed its controversial plans to make cyclists box up their bikes to travel, an investigation by CTC has revealed.

CTC has made a direct approach to Eurostar asking for a meeting to discuss the high-speed train provider’s controversial plans to make cyclists dismantle and box up their bikes to travel.

 
 
A day after CTC launched its 'Zero stars for Eurostar' campaign calling on the train provider to rethink its proposed new cycle-carriage policy, London Mayor Boris Johnson MP has said he will write to Eurostar urging them not to proceed with the planned changes.
