Cash For Cycling in Richmond

London's Mayor has allocated funds to cycling projects in Richmond, Surrey.

£50,000 will be used for shared routes and making parts of the Thames towpath suitable for both pedestrians and cyclists, and TfL will also use £90,000 to complete Richmond’s cycle network by creating lanes and off-road paths.

Note that Richmond enjoys rather higher levels of cycling than other London boroughs. I've not turned up any analysis as to why, but it could be related to the Thames towpath and Richmond Park both having reasonable-quality off-road routes. I'd be interested to hear from any Richmond cyclists with opinions on the matter.
