Islington Cycling Club is going from strength to strength – a handful of members last year and around 240 now – with a significant number of women cyclists.
There was a long queue for Doctor Bike all day and the Police “Changing Places” was popular too. (“Changing Places” lets cyclists sit in the driver’s seat of a huge lorry and to see how much (or how little) the driver can see of cyclists on the near side of the lorry.)
For the first time, we ran out of membership application leaflets. Normally we have to cajole people to take them; instead people were coming to the stall saying, “I’d like to join LCC.” We must be doing something right!
It looks like this event will be a regular fixture on the calendar – it could be bigger and better next year.
