RCC Newsletter – 28 October 2010

Once or twice a month, we send out an email update on cycling in Richmond. If you’d like to sign up for these, contact us here.

We also post the newsletters here on our website. Read below and enjoy! Previous newsletters can be found here.

Hello,

Events
Our next meeting will be our annual meeting.  This is back at our usual
venue – The Old Ship pub in Richmond, starting at 20:00 on Monday 8th
November.  We’re having a social afterwards, so if you want to meet us but
don’t want to do the bureaucracy, get there for 20:30.
We will be voting for our officers and checking our documentation and
accounts.  Details below…

Get in touch if you would like to be considered for a role in the group or
have any comments on the documents.  Job descriptions are available in the
link above.  Officers have to be members of the London Cycling Campaign.
All roles can be shared.
Once we have done all the voting and document checking, we will have a get
together and a chat about cycling and everything else.

Richmond Station Consultation

Please take the time to fill this in – there is no provision for cyclists at
all in the council’s plans.  Have a look at our view on our website…

It is also worth commenting on the council’s proposed car parking charges.
Free parking for 30 minutes encourages people to use their cars.  A journey
you can do in under 30 minutes in a car can easily be done by bicycle and
bicycle parking is free all the time.
