How can we make Brixton more cycle friendly? Public meeting 1 April 2014

How can Brixton and the surrounding areas be transformed into places where adults and children feel safe and comfortable cycling around?

Come to the PUBLIC MEETING arranged by Lambeth Cyclists on Tuesday 1 April 2014 7.00pm at 336 Brixton Road, SW9 7AA 

Brixton is very much the political centre of Lambeth with the town hall and council offices located around the town centre. Brixton is also an important retail and entertainments centre with good transport links bringing people in from across London and further afield. But away from the main streets Brixton is largely a residential area.

Greater Brixton, incorporating surrounding areas including Loughborough Junction, Herne Hill and Tulse Hill, has one of the lowest levels of car ownership in the UK but the area is dominated by motor traffic with the A23 Brixton Road a key strategic London route and roads such as Acre Lane and Coldharbour Lane acting as important cross-London links.

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.

Although improved over the past 10 years many Brixton roads remain 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 Brixton to become a place where people of all ages cycle without fear to friends, to shops, to school, or to work? How can we make Space for Cycling?

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 fourth 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 Brixton Hill, Coldharbour, Ferndale, Herne Hill and Tulse Hill wards, then please come along.

PUBLIC MEETING arranged by Lambeth Cyclists 

Tuesday 1 April 2014 7.00pm at 336 Brixton Road, SW9 7AA

Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride 29 March 2014: Medieval and Tudor South London

Join us on Saturday 29 March 2014 for an easy going ride around suburban South London looking at the surviving medieval and Tudor buildings from Croydon to Cheam.

Whitgift Almshouses Croydon on lambethcyclists.org.ukDespite the passage of time many buildings still remain dating from this period when Croydon was a significant market town and home to the Archbishop of Canterbury at Croydon Palace.

Archbishop John Whitgift, set up a foundation to provide charitable care for residents. The buildings constructed by the Whitgift Foundation such as the almshouses (pictured) will be amongst those we visit on this ride along with Croydon Minster, All Saints Church in Carshalton and Whitehall in Cheam.

This ride will explore some of the lesser-visited parts of South London travelling down, in many cases, quiet lanes through suburbia. This ride is suitable for all riders and all types of bike.

Join us for this easy going ride.

Meet Saturday 29 March 2014 10:15am (for 10:30) at Streatham Common Station. Or meet us at East Croydon station at 10:50.

We will stop for lunch at about 1pm at the Little Windsor pub in Greyhound Road, Sutton,  and end at about 4pm in Cheam, returning from a railway station in Cheam or Sutton or cycling back to Lambeth.

Please make sure your bike is in good order. This ride will be led by Anthony Gilmour - contact 0795 1572330.
