HELP FUND BARNET CYCLISTS

Just hiring the hall for our monthly meetings costs more than the grant we get from “our parent” the London Cycling Campaign, and that is apart from the rides and campaigning we do. So normally we ask you to help by making a contribution in the spring, but this year the new data protection regs got in the way.

Belatedly we would now like to ask you to make your annual contribution to our group funds. If you are a full LCC member then about £4 would help. If you just associate with Barnet Cyclists and come on our rides or to our meetings, then a larger contribution of about £10 would be appreciated.

Ideally we would like you to pay by bank transfer (internet or phone banking) directly into our own account. It is “London Cycling Campaign Barnet Branch” sort code 60 83 01, a/c no. 20225687 and, vitally important, give your name as a reference.

But be assured if you would prefer to donate by cash or cheque we will still grab it. (Cheques to ‘Barnet Cyclists’ or the full a/c name as above)  If posting send to: Treasurer, Barnet Cyclists, 38 Glenwood Rd. NW7 4LJ)

So in anticipation – many thanks for your valued support.

Saturday 28th July Prudential RideLondon Freecycle

The LCC is planning to run a feeder ride from Tally Ho Corner at 10am on the 28th. They will provide a leader but they need marshals to help. If you would like to volunteer please read on….and contact the LCC direct.

Ride marshal volunteers needed for Freecycle Feeder rides

The Prudential RideLondon Freecycle is on Saturday 28th July and London Cycling Campaign are running a ride from every London borough into the event, and back home again. These rides escort families and those less confident at cycling on London’s busy roads into the closed-road course at a relaxed pace. We’re looking for experienced cyclists to lend their confident pedal power to those less experienced and provide a safe escort into the City! We need as many volunteers as possible from every borough, so please register to volunteer asap!

Ride Marshal and Ride Leader training

We are running our first marshal training next week in the evening on Tuesday 26th June – please forward to anyone interested in marshalling for Freecycle this year! See here for direct sign up link.

In addition we have two other dates for marshal training, and some ride leader training: see here for more info.
