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 Norwood 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 third 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 Thurlow Park, Knight's Hill or Gipsy Hill wards, then please come along.
