Pedal Power 17 rush hour Tuesday/meeting/weekend/tunnel/Bala
- Quiet was it?After a slight hibernation (the rides didn't) Pedal Power 17 (our normally monthly newsletter) hits the streets any day now. And here too.Please help leaflet/count the rush hour this Tuesday 5 March from 7-9am and catch maybe 500 bikes.Will the number heading for Canary Wharf under the tunnel overtake those heading down Creek Roads to the City?...It's getting close as London shifts east. We knew it makes sense. The demographic tension's unbearable, gather and get the results at once. Be there. Meet at the Cutty Sark foot-tunnel entrance Tuesday at 7am, or just before, and we'll cover the tunnel and Creek Road Bridge. It's a really effective way to catch the like-minded on a blue sky sunny day. Or in a freezing rainstorm that'll make you feel really useful. And get a free coffee from me. Maybe. Let me know if you can be there. (Can I do the tunnel for once please?).Please mail me direct if you can help.Our next monthly meeting on Wednesday 6 March starts at 7.30pm, ends at 9pm at the From at Greenwich. 177 Trafalgar Road.Agenda1.
