Once a month, we send out an email update on cycling in the Richmond Borough. If you’d like to sign up for these, contact us here to be first to hear the cycling news that affects you across the borough.
We also post the newsletters here on our website the following week. Read below and enjoy! Previous newsletters can be found here.
This newsletter covers both July and August so we can have a month off crafting a newsletter and enjoy cycling in the good weather instead!
So summer arrived and went again, but we had a lovely few weeks of long days cycling in the sun. This month it’s a double newsletter covering July and August and we’ve made it a bumper consultation edition to capture all those issues that will impact your cycle across the borough (and beyond). It’s your chance to make your voice heard. There’s also news of this Saturday’s Feeder ride to London Freecycle – we hope to see many of you there to join in the fun.
A raft of consultations affecting cycling both directly and indirectly across the borough. Please, please, we really need everyone who reads this newsletter to take 2 minutes to reply to these consultations. Every response counts as you can see further down on the responses to recent consultations.
First up is Twickenham town centre, and if you only do one campaigny thing for cycling this year, then take 1 minute to fill in the simple tick box online consultation. Proposals include a 20mph zone in Twickenham town centre and opening up Holly Road as a cycling contraflow to avoid the busy and dangerous London Road/King Street intersection. Both are big steps forward and need as much support as possible to demonstrate the support for improvements for cycling and for wider demand for 20mph zones across the borough. They’re not the full picture (see below for our update on the Twickenham town centre) but a big positive response sends a strong message and is needed to counter certain people set against cycling who are out to scupper anything that benefits cycling.
Deadline Monday 12 August 5pm – http://is.gd/cbqczP
