Like our parent organisation, London Cycling Campaign, Richmond Cycling Campaign is not party political for two important reasons. First, we have to work with whoever’s in power, although this is becoming difficult with the current administration who recently withdrew our invitation to attend their Transport Management Liaison Group. Second, and more importantly, our members have a wide range of political opinions we must respect. That said we will comment on what is being done by those in power and welcome the support of others, as we did with London Road roundabout and in the RCC Election Manifesto. For that reason we accepted the invitation to cycle with Jenny Jones, the Green Party candidate for Mayor of London, who will be visiting the Borough on Thursday 29th September as part of a tour around all the London boroughs looking at cycling provision. We’ll do the same for the other mayoral candidates if they ask. We’re working on the route, which we’ll post here, but if you want to talk to her about cycling in the Borough we’re meeting at Richmond railway station at 145pm and riding for about 90 minutes.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in riding or have a cycling issue to tell her about.
