Wandsworth enforce no cycling rule on Tooting Common

We are always looking at local issues that impact on our ability to encourage cycling in Lambeth.

Recently we have become aware of the enforcement of no cycling across the north corner of Tooting Common on LCN route 5 which links Streatham with Clapham. 

The short route across the Common is used by cyclists, including children going to and from the three local schools, but Wandsworth has now decided to enforce no cycling on the wide path linking the two Lambeth roads, with the alternative cycle route being along the dangerous Streatham High Road! We are in touch with Wandsworth and hope to promote shared use of the path. 

Please let us know of any other local issues that could easily be resolved and would encourage safer cycling.
