What’s up in September & October ?

We’re organising some autumn events and would love to welcome new recruits to our band of volunteers in Islington.

First up is on Saturday 9 September when we are holding our second Bikers’ breakfast in Whittingdon Park.  Come and say hello, have a coffee and chat and see if there are any croissants left.  From 0930 onwards.

And then we will be at the Saddle and Sole festival on Sunday 24 September  1200 onwards at Highbury Fields, organised by the council.  If you can spare an hour or two, please contact John@hartleywalford.com as we need help !

At both events, we will have our map of the borough where you can highlight issues for local cyclists;  is signage needed, where should there be an ASL, why isn’t there a proper diversion at Kingsbury Bridge, where do you need a bike hangar ….. and we will analyse all comments and see what we can do to improve things.

Giveaways, information and friendly people on bikes at both – look forward to seeing you !

There are a couple of rides being planned too;  the first is a family ride on Sunday 24 September at 1030, finishing at Gillespie Park at the Apple Day celebrations where we’ll have a stand.   The second is on Friday 3 November and will be an evening fireworks ride for over 18s;  no doubt there will be a pub visit for a hot drink at some stage.  More details of both rides coming soon.

And don’t forget our regular monthly meeting;  second Wednesday of the month at 1900h at the Town Hall, usually in committee room 3.  Followed by local refreshments after all the talking.
