Harrow Cyclists provided feeder rides to and from the RideLondon FreeCycle in Central London. The FreeCycle is an event for all abilities, where people will be able to cycle around an 8-mile circuit in Central London along roads closed to motor traffic.
We had about 40 people on the outward ride, which was led by Tony, and 15 people on the return ride led by Veronica.
Cycle Superhighway 11 will involve changes to the Swiss Cottage gyratory and part-time gate closures of Regents Park to prevent through motor traffic using the outer circle during the day (while maintaining access to the park and zoo).
This will restore the dangerous and polluted Outer Circle of Regents Park to its original function as a place for recreation and exercise.
This route is important for Harrow Cyclists as some of us use the route to reach Central London.
The proposals have been well supported in public consultation, but a vocal minority of motorists is vehemently opposed to the scheme.
This is why it is vital to show strong pro-CS11 support at Saturday’s event.
The demonstration will take place at 11am on 8 October outside the Hampstead Theatre in Swiss Cottage. Please come along to show your support!
Brent Cyclists will be meeting at Gladstone Park (main bridge across the railway, at the foot of Parkside) at 10:30am to ride to Swiss Cottage. They will also pick up anyone who wants to wait at at Kilburn station at 10:45am. After seeing what goes on at the demo they will probably go to Regent’s Park for an ice-cream or something.
