      Dear Lambeth Cyclists,

      SouthWest trains are planning to hugely reduce their service for cyclists.
      Please consider the following and do reply to the consultation:


      Proposed changes by SouthWest Trains are reported to impose more
      restrictions on the ability to take a bike on trains, including early and
      reverse-flow services where fewer than 10% of the seats are filled.

      SOUTHWEST TRAINS' PROPOSALS MEAN THAT IF YOU CURRENTLY COMMUTE 'AGAINST THE
      FLOW' WITH YOUR BICYCLE FROM, SAY, CLAPHAM JUNCTION TO FELTHAM, YOU WILL NO
      LONGER BE ABLE TO DO SO.

      The 'cyclists' survey taking place at this time fails to include those who
      park at one or both ends of their journey, and those who have been forced
      into using folding bikes.

      If you count up the number of bikes parked at Waterloo by incoming
      commuters, and multiply by a typical season ticket fare, the parked bikes
      represent at least �0.5 million worth of ticket sales. When added to the
      equal number of bikes still arriving on the trains, and the similar masses
      of bikes parked at major stations like Woking, it shows just how significant
      the cycling commuter is to SouthWest Trains.

      Cyclists, in your own interest, please do fill in the reply paid forms, and
      if you don't actually take the bike on the train (or have been forced to
      park or get a folding bike) just add an extra response box to let SW Trains
      know that they have a far bigger number of bike & train travellers than they
      might realise.

      *You can pick up a form from any local SWT staffed station*

      e.g. Clapham Junction, Wandsworth Town, Putney, Wimbledon, Waterloo.

      Deadline for responses is Wednesday 21 July.

      Ch�
