Next meeting: Tuesday 26th March 2002
You are invited to come along to the next Lambeth Cyclists meeting:
Tuesday 26th March at 8.30 pm
Upstairs meeting room
Bread & Roses pub
68 Clapham Manor Street
Two important issues will be raised at the meeting: The latest (not very
cycle-friendly) proposals for Vauxhall Cross, and an update on the Lambeth
Cyclists Annual General Meeting coming up on 23rd April.
= Vauxhall Cross =
The current works and development proposals have generated a lot of
correspondence to Lambeth Cyclists, Lambeth Council, and Transport for
London. These have mostly been about the present chaos and the apparent lack
of provision for safer cycling routes in the future plans.
The scheme is managed by Transport for London, a body accountable to the
Greater London Authority (GLA) and chaired by the Mayor, Ken Livingstone.
Should you have concerns about this area, we strongly urge you to take this
up in the first instance with Valerie Shawcross, GLA Assembly Member for
Lambeth and Southwark, and Jenny Jones, Green Party GLA Assembly Member.
We have received news that Jenny Jones has been appointed by the Mayor as
the first ever �Road Safety Ambassador�, with a remit to reduce the number
of road traffic casualties over the next few years.

Got a little spare time? It�s never too early to consider playing a more
active role in cycle campaigning, and the committee posts of Lambeth
Cyclists will be up for election on 23rd April. Actual time commitment is
not nearly as much as you might think, and you�ll have the satisfaction of
knowing that you�re helping in the voice of cyclists being heard in Lambeth
and London generally.
Posts for election are:
- Borough Coordinator
(Non-mandatory Coordinating Posts)
- Rides and Social Events
- Newsletter/ Publicity/ External Affairs
- Projects and Bike Events
- Council Liaison
Some posts may be non-mandatory, but all are essential. Experience is not
essential however, but enthusiasm and a sense of fun is!
