Islington Town Hall, 14 December 2017, 6.30 pm

London Assembly Member and Islington Councillor Caroline Russell will talk about her report for the London Assembly Transport Committee which is to be published on 4th Dec. The report looks at how the Mayor can tackle main roads that are hostile for walking and cycling and make them into healthy places where it is a pleasure to get around on foot and by bike.

November 2017 Meeting

Thursday 30th November: Monthly Meeting – Best Cycling Books

Friern Barnet Quietway survey

Healthy Streets: Friern Barnet Lane, Ashurst Road, and Buxted Road

BARNET COUNCIL SAID:

Quietway FAQ’s

They are different from Cycle Superhighways, being much more low‐key in nature, and appeal to people of all ages and cycling experience.
