“Heavy persuasion”!

Some how at the Forest Gate Festival I was “heavily persuaded” by member into joining Newham Cyclists’s on their next bike ride around the Borough. Monday 3rd August came by too quickly and before I knew it I was on a very pretty bike (Thank you Cornelia and Thom Forzagaribal) cycling down the proposed Quietway 6 route from Coffee7 FG with the Newham Cyclists Squad! o_0. We stopped at theOlympic Park and while enjoying a much needed drink I attended their meeting. CLgcFH8WEAAKllEDuring the meeting we discussed the challenges with the proposed Quietway route and I took away plenty of useful suggestions which I’ll pass on to Newham London officers. It was really helpful for me to see the route from a cyclists perspective- literally! Thank you SO much Newham Cyclists for looking after me, I expected to come with at least one bruise from falling off my bike in panic but instead I woke up with stiff legs 😉 ‪#‎Squad‬!

Newham Cyclists are part of the London Cycling Campaign group who are leading on a really important End Lorry Danger Campaign You can find out more about them and or joining the group here: http://newhamcyclists.org.uk/
