15 riders for a late October ride with grey skies and a far from perfect weather forecast. But the rain held off and we had a great ride from Peckham to Dulwich and back. Outward by Dawsons Hill. Views of London skyline a bit hazy but still complemented by the fine Autumn colours this year (see photo). Discovered coming off Dawsons hill that one of the bikes had rather poor brakes. Found this before the descent so no injuries! Longish stop at Pavilion Cafe in Dulwich Park saw both front and back brakes rendered effective. Next stop Herne Hill Velodrome. Always makes a huge impression on people who have never been there. Lots of activity . Big groups training on the track and a large platoon of younger cyclists on the mountain bike trail. Back via Greenway and Camberwell Grove. Route at http://goo.gl/mMbQZ7. Next ride not until 2nd Saturday in November (14th) starting Canada Water.

This is huge for anyone cycling in darkness around Burgess Park as it offers a much more comprehensive lit east west cycling route between Portland Street and Peckham. https://twitter.com/HealthyStsSE17/status/1528371613074604033
Excellent progress by @lb_southwark with the trial closure of St George's Way by #BurgessPark. Will mean far safer access to the park for the large number of people that live just south of the park and hopefully ease some of the pressure on the east-west Canal Path in the park. 4
“Candidates in Dulwich Village, south-east London, where opposition was among the fiercest, failed to win over voters … what many people may not realise is that if the UK is to take its net-zero goals seriously, measures such as LTNs are just the start” https://www.ft.com/content/2a1c7d1f-d012-4679-b413-f9a19a110471
