Hello everyone. We have all been really excited to see so many more folk start cycling out there. And the membership of this group has expanded very quickly, reflecting this.

These ideas fall into these main categories Immediate implementation of two planned Healthy Neighbourhood trials. Proceed with the Deptford Liveable Neighbourhood project. Acceleration of Cycleway
As the lockdown begins to ease, already we can what the effects of Covid-19 on London’s transport system going forward might mean. Drastically reduced capacity on public transport, which even those of us who have to work, are asked not to use.
