Southwark Cyclists Car Free Day
Southwark Cyclists are planning to run rides and events as part of London Car Free Day, starting at 11am. The programme will include group rides around the car free area (including Tooley St, Tower Bridge, Fenchurch St, Bank, Bishopsgate, London Bridge). We will be organising some small competitions on Tooley St to test your cycling skills, e.g. slow races, track standing, limbo. Bring any equipment for street games, e.g. tennis or badmnton rackets and shuttles/balls, in case we get bored with cycling (unlikely, but we might just fancy a quick game of something else).
We are asking you to sign up so we have an idea of numbers and can do some planning. If a lot of people are coming we will maintain a constant presence at the Needle. If we are not there, come and search for us. Look for a bike with an orange flag on a tall pole. See you there!
It would be helpful to know rough numbers, so if you are planning to come along there’s an (optional) Evenbrite form at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/southwark-cyclists-car-free-day-tickets-72845110687 Do not worry if you have not done this – just turn up. We will be there.
September 22nd is London’s biggest car-free day so far, closing 12.3 miles (20km) of roads in the centre of the city. Roads will be closed around London Bridge, Tower Bridge and much of the City of London. Boroughs across the city will also hold events promoting walking, cycling and public transport, as well as creating scores of “play streets”.
