Cycle Cash Mob

Cycle 'Cash Mob'

Would you welcome safer cycling in Palmers Green?

Come to the Palmers Green Shopping Carnival on your bike! – 12 noon on Saturday 5 July

Enfield Cycling Campaign are organising a short cycle ride along Green Lanes in Palmers Green during the Shopping Carnival on Saturday 5 July. We will meet at 12 noon on the junction of Green Lanes and Compton Road in Winchmore Hill. The idea of the ride is to:
◾Celebrate Enfield’s success in winning the Mini Holland bid to create safe space for cycling
◾Show our support for cycle lanes on Palmers Green high street
◾Encourage shopkeepers on Green Lanes that they will not lose business if some parking is replaced by cycle lanes.

People can also shop by bike! Some shopkeepers oppose the Mini Holland scheme, but research in the UK and abroad shows that cycling facilities boost business in the long run. We aim to reassure our local traders on Saturday 5 July by doing a bit of shopping by bike: a cycle ‘cash mob’! Please come if you support safer cycling for you and your children. Cycling should be for everyone. Come even if you don’t normally cycle – and bring your friends and your children and your friend’s children and your children’s friends and your granny and your mother-in-law. Oh, and your bike!
