Southwark’s Space for Cycling ride, 10 May
Believe in ‘Space for Cycling’ for Southwark? Come along to Southwark Bridge this Saturday at 11am, and help us send a message.
This is great news, but with just a couple of weeks left before the local elections, there’s a lot more work to do to get the remaining candidates on board.
That’s why Southwark Cyclists are holding a photo op and guided ride that will send the Space for Cycling message loud and clear. Everyone’s welcome, and we’d love you to come along and help us!
Start: 11am, Saturday 10 May, at Queen Street, north end of Southwark Bridge
Route: See map below for details. We’ll:
- Ride south along Cycle Superhighway 7 (CS7), where unlawfully parked cars often block the cycle lane.
- Stop, hold up the lovely red Space for Cycling banner and smile for the camera. Pictures say a thousand words, and ours will show that CS7 isn’t fit for purpose and we want that fixed.
- Continue down over the Elephant & Castle roundabout, and along Heygate Street and Walworth Road – both streets we’re asking candidates to improve for cyclists.
Finish: 12noon (ish), Burgess Park, Park Life Café
If you’re a candidate, you’ll find out more about Space for Cycling and the needs of cyclists in Southwark. If you’re a cyclist or would get on a bike if only it was safer to ride, come along and tell your future local politicians about the problems you face.
