Thanks to everyone who turned up for the feeder ride and made it so good. Special thanks go to Nick for the route and Sergeant Kendall and his team from Islington Safer Transport Team – we haven’t had a police escort van before! Congratulations to Suzy for a fine speech and Jono for winning the ‘Evans’ Prize. Photos still on their way…
Amazing! 124 of 177 Islington candidates have supported Space for Cycling. We’re second borough at 70.6% on May 21. 240 of 242 Hackney candidates signed up – giving them the top percentage of 99.17%. All impressive. 112 of 225 Camden candidates committed to Space for Cycling, giving that borough a score of 49.78%.
Since the launch, over 82,256 emails have been sent from all over London – by 18.30 on the eve of the polls. Look at the LCC site to see the number updating.
Once the elections are over, we may move into another phase. We could find ourselves writing to the ward councillors to honour their promises…
At the LCC office, volunteers are working hard to keep the website up-to-date. You may have to adjust the view on your computer (Zoom out) to see the pages properly. On the page for each ward, is the “ask” and it also displays the percentage of candidates who are supporting the “ask.”
I would like to join the ride on route, but there is no route posted. Would be great to indicate the route on google maps, so we can wait at a place where you pass through
OK we’ll post something up before Friday evening!
Did you get on the ride? The google map of the route was up there Friday night (and now seems to have disappeared).
Bit surprised the police had to bring a van. The beauty of these rides is to have no motor vehicles. Police on push bikes are OK though.
