Making Streatham Cycle Friendly - Public meeting Tuesday 4 February 2014

How can Streatham be rapidly transformed into a place where adults and children feel safe and comfortable cycling around?

PUBLIC MEETING arranged by Lambeth Cyclists (please tell others in the area) 

Tuesday 4 February 2014 7.30pm at the Wellfield Centre, 16 Wellfield Road Streatham SW16 2BP 

 We know that cycling provides astonishing health benefits; doesn’t pollute; helps fight climate change; is cheap; and could provide a quick and independent form of travel around the central London area for adults of all ages as well as children.

But our road system is currently intimidating; not just to children but also to many people who would cycle if it were made pleasant to do so.

What changes need to be made for Streatham to become a place where people of all ages cycle without fear to friends, to shops, to school, or to work?

How long will it take for changes to take place and what obstacles need to be overcome? Are our schools, our doctors, our politicians, our businesses, our transport professionals, our police and our residents doing all they can to make this area fantastic for cycling?

How can we retain the benefits that motor vehicles provide in moving large numbers of people and heavy goods, while also being unconcerned about our children travelling by bike?

This is the second in a series of five monthly meetings around Lambeth providing a chance to meet Lambeth Cyclists, the borough group of the London Cycling Campaign, and discuss the neighbourhood changes needed to make cycling the easy and obvious choice for local journeys.

If you live in, work in, or travel through Streatham Hill, Streatham Wells, Streatham South or St Leonard's Wards, then please come along.

Making North Lambeth Cycle Friendly - Public Meeting 20th Jan

PUBLIC MEETING arranged by Lambeth Cyclists (please tell others in the area)

How can North Lambeth be rapidly transformed into a place where adults and children feel safe and comfortable cycling around?

We know that cycling provides astonishing health benefits; doesn’t pollute; helps fight climate change; is cheap; and could provide a quick and independent form of travel around the central London area for adults of all ages as well as children.

But our road system is currently intimidating; not just to children but also to many people who would cycle if it were made pleasant to do so.

What changes need to be made for North Lambeth to become a place where people of all ages cycle without fear to friends, to shops, to school, or to work?

How long will it take for changes to take place and what obstacles need to be overcome? Are our schools, our doctors, our politicians, our businesses, our transport professionals, and our residents doing all they can to make this area fantastic for cycling?

How can we retain the benefits that motor vehicles provide in moving large numbers of people and heavy goods, while also being unconcerned about our children travelling by bike?

Will Vauxhall be more cycling friendly than Amsterdam, as Boris Johnson promised? Will the proposed central London grid deliver real change? Will the Myatt’s Fields developments result in a cycling culture? Will all local schools provide cycle training to their pupils?

This is the first in a series of five monthly meetings around Lambeth providing a chance to meet Lambeth Cyclists, the borough group of the London Cycling Campaign, and discuss the neighbourhood changes needed to make cycling the easy and obvious choice for local journeys.

If you live in, work in, or travel through Oval, Vassall, Princes or Bishop’s Ward (broadly from Myatt’s Fields and Vauxhall up to the Thames) then please come along.
