    Message 1 of 1 , May 15, 2002

      Various items have been forwarded to Lambeth Cyclists by fellow cycle
      campaigners which hopefully are of interest to you. These follow below.

      First though, an update on the outcome of the AGM in April. The evening was
      a great success, and many thanks to all of you that came and added to the
      debate with the prospective candidates.

      Incidentally, for those of you that may not know, as a result of the local
      elections Labour no longer has a majority at Lambeth Town Hall. There is now
      �no overall control� with Labour and the Liberal Democrats with 28 seats and
      the Conservatives with 7 seats.

      As far as Lambeth Cyclists goes, the committee has been strengthened with
      three new members and now consists of: Philip Loy (Borough Coordinator);
      Fiona Gillison (Treasurer); Clare Neely (Council Liaison); Luke Evans
      (Communications); and also Kahya Engler, Gerard Stewart, and Olivia
      Christophersen for various projects. Here�s to another successful year!

      Philip Loy
      Borough Coordinator for Lambeth Cyclists

      Items that follow:

      - Herne Hill Velodrome
      - South Bank and Waterloo Exhibition
      - New Cycle Maps
      - Esso campaign


      = Message from Barry Mason � Herne Hill Velodrome =
      [This velodrome is perhaps a lesser known historic landmark and was built
      for the Olympics in the 1930s.]

      Southwark Council are chairing an open meeting about the future of the
      velodrome this Thursday evening at 6.30pm at Peckham Pulse (at Canal Head on
      Peckham Road, top of Rye Lane). The meeting will hear optional ways forward
      and is an important stage as the Council considers future funding etc. Try
      and make it there. It's important that the Council realises that not only
      track addicts want to save the place, commuting/ leisure/ utility/ lifestyle
      cyclists like us are interested too. I'm now on the Steering Committee on
      the future of the place and am representing both the LCC and Southwark

      At the velodrome itself: our next take over of it on Saturday 25 May, 1.30
      until 4.30pm. Borrow a track bike, get taught how to ride it. Have fun. �10.

      = Message from Peter Lewis (LCC) =


      Have you thought of cycling in London but been put off by busy traffic? Do
      you cycle locally, but would be interested in going further if you only had
      help to find your way through London's congested streets? Are you feeling
      unhealthy, and want to rectify the situation? Now you can...

      For the first time a series of cycle maps covers the whole of Greater
      London. The maps show official cycle routes, traffic free routes and London
      Cycling Campaign members' recommendations for quiet routes and cut-throughs.
      By showing many different types of routes they will make cycling safer and
      easier, as people who cycle will be able to choose routes that avoid busy
      junctions and roundabouts. What's more the maps are FREE and have been
      produced by Transport for London and the London Cycling Campaign. Based on
      the A-Z, and produced in colour they are available by calling 020 7222 1234
      or going to

      The maps also contain useful tips for cyclists, information on local bike
      shops and up to date information on parking your bike at stations.

      Want to know which map shows your area? See the list below.

      If you want to find out what the London Cycling Campaign does to promote
      cycling in London or if you want more information on how to get cycling in
      London - where to get training, insurance, information on how to by a cycle
      helmet/ second hand bikes, or news on leisure rides etc. then email
      office@... and we will send you more information.

      Forward this email to a friend in London who wants to start cycling or who

      = Esso boycott � Saturday 18th May =
      (received from Roger Geffen)

      Although this is strictly outside the business of Lambeth Cyclists, some
      members have expressed an interest in this boycott so we include it here. It
      basically involves a co-ordinated campaign with Greenpeace, Friends of the
      Earth, and others to have pickets this Saturday at Esso garages at various
      London locations (and all over the country) as a way of objecting to Esso's
      stance on climate change.

      If you would like to know more about this campaign, please e-mail us at
      lambeth_cyclists@... and we will forward information we have
      received in full.
