Greenwich

New cycling guide to be launched at Annual Cycling Forum

Published Tuesday, 17 October 2017

The event will be a great chance to get latest cycling news and to have your say.

The event hosted by Councillor Sizwe James, the Council's Cabinet Member of Transport, Economy and Smart Cities, will be a great chance for people to get the latest news on cycling plans for the Borough and express their views.

Guide to safe cycling

The new, simple and accessible guide to safe cycling in Royal Greenwich, and London generally, has been created in response to feedback from cycling instructors, and from residents at the 2016 Cycling Forum. The publication will be given to attendees on the Council's cycle training schemes to take home as a reminder of the lessons they have learned.

Latest cycling news and updates

The forum meeting is to feature updates from Council officers on infrastructure schemes in the borough as well as the latest on the Greenwich Low Emission Neighbourhood, cycle training and borough-wide cycling projects.

Attendees will also get the chance to give feedback on schemes and ask any questions generally on cycling in Royal Greenwich. Guest speakers from Greenwich Cyclists and Limited Edition will also discuss a number of other cycling topics.

'Great opportunity to hear people's views'

Councillor Sizwe James, Cabinet Member for Transport, Economy and Smart Cities, said: "We're creating some excellent cycling opportunities within the Royal Borough, and the Forum gives us a great opportunity to hear people's views on them.

"We have made a simple and accessible guide to help more residents get on their bikes and enjoy the health benefits cycling can bring. The guide will be a great resource for participants on our training schemes to take home as a reminder of their classes on safe cycling.

"Our Cycling Strategy is an important part of our work with residents to improve the air quality in the Borough and make Royal Greenwich a greener, cleaner place."
