Inviting Cycling: Kensington & Chelsea Cycling Forum

On Monday night I'll be speaking at the Kensington & Chelsea Cycling Forum - an annual event which brings together local cyclists, bike campaigners and representatives from the local Council.  It's a great opportunity to meet your fellow west London cyclists and also to highlight any issues that local riders might face on the ground, as well as to hear a couple of speakers.

I'll be giving a talk on "Inviting Cycling; the future of cycle campaigning in London" which will touch on the subjects of how we ended up with the cycling environment we have today, and looking at all the ways both big and small we can go about creating an environment which invites people to cycle. 

The other speaker on the evening is Kathryn King, K&C Council's Road Safety Manager.  Kathryn is a 'real' cyclist - here she is looking very dapper on the Tweed Run last month - and she spearheaded and the inspiring "Like Riding a Bike" exhibition, which we've featured on the blog before.  Though the exhibition is now finished, I do encourage you to come and hear Kathryn speak - it's sure to be an inspiring evening.

Oh, and did I mention that drinks and nibbles are provided?!  Hope to see some of you there!

The Kensington & Chelsea Cyclist's Forum is on the evening of Monday the 16th May from 6PM at Kensington Town Hall (Map).
