Members of Southwark Cyclists took part in a ride through the borough on Saturday to highlight the London-wide Space for Cycling campaign and its local requests for action.
Across the capital the London Cycling Campaign and its local groups – including as Southwark Cyclists and Lambeth Cyclists – have identified a project that would make cycling more attractive in each of the city's 600+ wards.
These 'ward asks' have been promoted as part of the Space for Cycling campaign and candidates in next week's local elections have been asked to give their support to the suggested measures.
The 'ward asks' in SE1:
• Cathedrals Ward: An upgrade of Cycle Superhighway 7 so that cyclists don't have to pull out in front of parked cars during off-peak hours.
• South Bermondsey Ward: segregated cycle lanes in Catlin Street and Rolls Road
Find out more at www.space4cycling.org – and find out which candidates in your ward have backed the campaign.
