- London Mayor candidate Malcolm McLaren plans cycle giveaway

MAVERICK Mayor candidate, Malcolm McLaren has pledged to give a free bike to every household in London.

"If I can make it feel more sexy to ride a bicycle, I can connect Londoners to the landscape" he said yesterday.

The former Sex Pistols manager also promised a huge boost in subsidies for public transport if he is elected in the 4 May 2000 poll. Ex-Creation Records boss Alan McGee is backing the punk fashion guru in his off-beat campaign.

However, McLaren, seen by many as the leading non-party candidate in the race, has seen his prospects slip with rumours that Ken Livingstone might stand as an independent. The Brent East MP said yesterday that he may leave it a couple of weeks before making his final decision on whether to stand for the election.
