Thank you to everyone who took part in Bike Week 2008 in Lambeth which as ever proved to be very popular.
We kicked off with a fascinating ‘Black History’ ride around the sites of South London. This was led by local historian Steve Martin, who managed to lead a very interesting bike ride after years of non-cycling!
The cyclists’ breakfast and Dr Bike were very popular and the CTUK cycle mechanics were able to fix a steady stream of bikes.
Later at our regular meeting we were joined by Richard Ambler and Susie Harrison of Lambeth’s Transport department and Councillor Nigel Haselden, deputy Cabinet Member for Sustainability, who is responsible for cycling in the borough, to discuss the council’s cycling initiatives and how best we can work with Lambeth.
The ‘parks’ ride on Saturday was extremely fascinating as it revealed the many gems to be found in South East London, many of which we never knew were there. We had of course our firm favourite, the cyclists’ barbecue, which is always a popular event, plus the Family Fun Day at which we met dozens of families, and a couple of cycling clowns! Thanks to everyone for helping put together our events!
