On Friday I went to one of the last of the London mayoral hustings before the election on 5 May, co-organised by London Cycling Campaign and hosted by The Times in their building on London Bridge Road. There were three of us from Enfield Cycle Campaign: David Hilliard and Andrew Larssen, who both cycled from Enfield, and myself (Clare Rogers) who chickened out and took the train.
This conference at Enfield’s Dugdale Centre on Friday 8 April left me feeling both inspired and daunted – inspired because we were shown what is possible and already being done in the Netherlands – and daunted because Enfield has such a long way to go. Continue reading

With the developments in Mini Holland in Enfield, this has been an exciting year and next year promises to be just as exciting. Please come along to our Annual Meeting to hear about our achievements and help plan for the future. Everyone is welcome.
In the meantime don’t forget to Sign for Cycling at: www.signforcycling.org and help to get the new mayor to take cycling seriously.
Don’t miss an afternoon of cycle-themed fun this Friday in Enfield Town centre! It’s for you – and your children/grandchildren/nephews/nieces – whether or not you already ride a bike.
The Enfield Cycling Fair will be an opportunity for the public to try out different bikes, discover that you CAN transport kids and shopping on two wheels, and have a go at the rollapaluza – a stationary bike race for ages 7 and up.
It’s from 12-5 on Fountain Island (opposite Barclays Bank on Church Street) and there will also be food and music.
It’s also not too late to volunteer to help out on the stall so let Clare know if you can on email@example.com. Thank you!
The Enfield Cycling Campaign and We Support Enfield Mini Holland residents group have sent the following letter to the Mayor of London in response to David Burrows MP factually inaccurate letter calling for a halt to the Mini Holland programme.
Only 3% of the Borrows’ constituents actually filled in his survey to oppose the scheme.
Here is Enfield Cycling Campaign’s response to the Cycle Enfield (Mini Holland) plans for the south section of the A1010. There’s more time now to have your say as the closing date has been extended to the 20 March.

Vigil and Die-In for the latest victim of road violence, Esther Hartsilver
Esther was crushed by a lorry in Camberwell. She wasn’t spared pain, she didn’t die straight away.
This is the environment which she braved, and which killed her. Esther was the sixth person to die whilst cycling in London this year (all by lorry drivers) and the fifth woman.
The Stop The Killing event will be held in Camberwell at 6 for 6.30pm. Please join us to make sure Esther’s death isn’t forgotten and ignored the way people killed with motor vehicles tend to be..
