Cycling and trees are both important parts of the green agenda. So, unsurprisingly, a recent ride looking at Great Trees proved very popular. Have now produced a turn-by-turn guide to the ride so that anyone interested can try it. It is an 11 mile circuit in Southwark and Lewisham that visits 6 trees from the “Great Trees of London Map” by Paul Wood. And the final tree? It is just off Tooley street- a Tree of Heaven.

We’re encouraging more people to cycle and walk through a new Executive Agency body, #ActiveTravel England. 🚴 🚶
@Chris_Boardman will be leading the new body as the first interim national Active Travel Commissioner.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a cycle hire scheme across the whole of @lb_southwark?
#EastDulwichStation would be a good docking location. @RoseCllr

@barbyonabike @MPSPeckham @southwarkcycle Could you @MerrillDarren inform this is unacceptable. Course all aware of heightened state of tension re- knife violence now. But blocking lanes like this esp for long periods could lead to v serious for cyclists. Not give the impression they too think they are above the law!
New briefing paper from consultancy Transport for Quality of Life collates the evidence on the need for absolute traffic reduction to meet climate targets. At *minimum* a 20% in car mileage must be achieved by 2030, requiring transformational policy change http://www.transportforqualityoflife.com/u/files/211214%20The%20last%20chance%20saloon%20to%20cut%20car%20mileage.pdf
