Come to the first Lambeth cycling conference on Saturday 27 April 2013.
Lambeth Council have organised a conference to discuss ways in which the borough can be made the most cycle friendly in London so that cycling is ‘normal’ and the default transport option for everyone.
Details from the Lambeth Sustainable Transport team
- How do we make Lambeth the most cycle-friendly borough in London?
- How do we make Lambeth a place where anyone who wants to cycle can?
- How do make Lambeth a place for 8-80 year old cyclists?
- Go Dutch? Let’s make Lambeth go Danish!
Lambeth is one of the leading cycling boroughs in London and has won awards for various projects including its HGV/cycle training and secure residential cycle parking.
There are more and more cyclists on the road – but the majority are young to middle-aged men.
Lambeth wants to make a leap forward to become a place where cycling is normal for everyone – young, old, women, men, rich and poor.
Lambeth hopes that the Mayor’s recent Vision for Cycling will be an opportunity to tackle main roads and junctions which have put many people off cycling and we believe that the time is right to make a big difference to cycling in the borough.
You are invited to this free half day conference to hear about projects that are happening now in Lambeth – and to have a say about what should be done in the next few years.
The conference aims to discuss what a cycle friendly Lambeth would be like – what should the priorities be to get there, what are the barriers at the moment and how can we all tackle them.
We want to make Lambeth the most cycle friendly borough in London.
Come along to help make it happen.
Lunch and refreshments provided.
The conference will be held at the YMCA, 40 Stockwell Road, SW9 (between Brixton and Stockwell)
