Events for October 2020 › Monthly Meeting
Lovely to finally speak, we’ve seen this woman a lot around Dulwich on her fabulous trike. She loves the changes - how much calmer Calton Ave & the junction are now. The favourite part of her journey is Greendale, with the e-assist she gets to overtake other cyclists! #OneLessCar
Melbourne Grove was part of Southwark's 2015 Cycling Strategy. Great that Streetspace schemes are bringing forward some of this strategy like here and Rye Lane.
The full length of Melbourne Grove is now a much safer low traffic route enabling people to get around #EastDulwich without a car.
Southwark first flagged it as a potential future route in 2015, it's good to see it finally come to fruition! ✔️#OneLessCar #ActiveTravel 3
Last chance to support improvements to Highway Code. Deadline on 27 th October. LCC's full response, and link to official DfT page (for your response) here: https://www.lcc.org.uk/articles/common-sense-coming-for-the-highway-code.
Here's a funny example of where, with comic brain-dead action, public works unthinkingly make life difficult for cyclists, because cycling is just seen as a frivolous optional extra. Why can't they just get off and walk? NB @southwarkcycle @willnorman
Utter garbage this on the new Cycleway 4. Could you imagine if they just blocked off a road to cars because temporary lights couldn't cope with the sequence? @TfL
And here also...some parking bays have been suspended on ED Grove. This could be a segregated cycle lane connecting Melbourne Grove to Glengarry/Hillsboro & beyond to QW7. It would enable more children to cycle to school safely & more people to get around the area by bike. https://twitter.com/EdstnStreets/status/13134463480632320012
It looks like there’s space for a safe segregated cycle lane here on East Dulwich Grove (a place where cars often speed and it can be scary to cycle).
What do you think @mcash @vicky_olisa @SuecharlieSmith @RoseCllr? 2
