Catford and the South Circular

Sadly, yet another person has been seriously injured on the stretch of the South Circular Rd that runs through Catford Town Centre. Its only a few months since Lewisham Cyclists rode in remembrance of Lukasz Binkowski, killed last year on the Catford Bridge section and now another rider has suffered what the police have described as life threatening injuries in a collision with a lorry again, just yards away on the same road. We have written to TfL, specifically to

Lewisham Cyclists Cyclist of the Week 6th July 2020

Len really enjoys his time with Wheels for Wellbeing. He attended the extremely popular weekly open session that ran regularly at the Ladywell Centre before Covid and can’t wait for it to start running again. Len says, “I began cycling as a small child aged about 5. I had polio and was very ill. Spent time in an iron lung.  Cycling was the perfect exercise to strengthen my weakened legs.   Why do you cycle? Its definitely a mobility aid for me.   I have

Cyclist of the Week June 26th 2020

How long have you been cycling? Off and on for the last ten years – mostly off.  I had a city bike in Hoboken, NJ to get to and from the underground but sadly it was destroyed in Hurricane Sandy.  Years later I am now cycling for the first time in the UK and London – I just bought my current bike a short while ago.  I am guessing it is about 10-12 years old and was brought over from Holland for the original

New Members Q&A Wednesday 24th June 7pm to 8pm

We thought a Q&A session online might be a way we can reach out to our new members, given our usual ways to do this (our rides and bike maintenance sessions) are on hold.  So, we have set up a session on Google Meet where people can bring any cycling
