Lambeth is one of the top boroughs in London for cycling and has won awards for various projects including its HGV/cycle training and secure residential cycle parking.
While the number of people cycling is increasing, the range of age, gender and experience isn’t.
Lambeth’s Council’s inviting people who’ve never cycled, those who’d like to but are apprehensive alongside experienced cyclists to talk about what’s needed to make Lambeth even better for bikes, similar to the cycling culture for all of Holland and Denmark, at a conference next Saturday 27th April.
Cllr Imogen Walker said; “Lambeth wants to make a leap forward to become a place where cycling is normal for everyone, whatever your age, sex or ability. We’ve got a great track record in safety training and bike security but many people are understandably nervous about getting on a bike for the first time or after a long gap. This is a chance for them as well as the more experienced cyclists to have their say and talk about how to make cycling easier and safer for everyone, to make Lambeth the most cycle friendly borough in London.”
Anyone is welcome to attend the conference but places are limited so it’s advisable to register.
Saturday 27th April 9.30-1.30pm with optional bike ride afterwards
