Easy to do on the go from our tablet! Thanks also to those of you who donated or bought jumble. Some of you did both! And thanks to our great team of efficient Dr Bikers, who ministered to dozens of ailing machines, replacing cables, brake pads and getting many of
At Lewisham Cyclists, we have been wondering just what the omission of Deptford Bridge from TfL’s revised list of junctions that will be reviewed with a view to redevelopment, actually means.

As we said a while back, Tfl had arranged to meet with us in the New Year to update us on their plans for CS5, specifically the section from New Cross to Lewisham.
