Fantastic guests and an opportunity not to be missed at Tuesday's Lambeth Cyclists meeting!
Lambeth Council has commissioned a plan for a dense borough-wide Cycle Network of appealing and convenient routes, this is to further its ambition to become London's most cycle friendly borough for all people, young and old. We are delighted that Mark Strong has agreed to outline the work. Mark is managing consultant of Transport Initiatives which will draw up the Network.
As members of Lambeth Cyclists, with unparalleled local knowledge, we need to be able to review and comment constructively on the plan when it has been drawn up.
To our great pleasure, Dr Rachel Aldred, chair of LCC's Policy Forum, has offered to follow on from Mark's briefing. Rachel is Reader in Transport at the University of Westminster and teaches on the university's MSc Transport Planning and Management. Rachel will set out considerations for a high quality network and take us through an exercise where we devise a cycle network for an area of Lambeth.
The meeting is this Tuesday, 17 January, from 7.30 (sharp!) to 9pm at Stockwell Community Centre, 1 Studley Road, SW4 6RA (just behind Stockwell tube station). Please come along if you can.
