Local boroughs decide the layout of almost all roads in London. Councillors talk the talk about active transport, but do they walk the walk (or cycle the cycle)?

Elections are a time to pressure our local politicians to TAKE ACTION. To improve cycling facilities MUCH MORE so that our roads are safer, our planet less polluted – and we are all healthier.

The London Cycling Campaign are organising a programme of action for Climate Safe Streets (https://lcc.org.uk/campaigns/climate-safe-streets/). As part of this the local groups in Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich are having a joint ride on Saturday 23rd April. Will be an easy route and marshals will control the busy bits so families can join in. You do not have to be a member of LCC. We want everyone to come along and demonstrate to councillors and candidates that more needs to be done to encourage cycling – to improve road safety and reduce pollution.

There are start/finish points in each borough.

You do not have to do the whole route. Fine to join us for just a stretch. Or great if you can do the entire route back and forth through all 3 boroughs. Route map.

Decorate your bike. Make a placard and work out how to carry it on your bike. We want to attract attention!

Please register on Eventbrite if you can, it helps with the planning, Climate Safe Streets Ride – Greenwich, Lewisham & Southwark.  However, not required – it is OK to just turn up.
