Vision Zero Progress Report

Dear Stakeholder.

We have published a progress report which outlines achievements from the past three years and commits to new tougher measures to ensure that it meets its Vision Zero goal of eliminating death and serious injury from London’s roads.

By 2019, London reduced the number of people being killed or seriously injured by 39 per cent against the 2005-09 baseline. In 2020, under pandemic road conditions, this reduction reached 52 per cent. 

Despite the decreases, 96 people were killed and 2,974 people suffered serious injuries on the capital’s roads in 2020. Continued action is needed to achieve our Vision Zero goal of eliminating death and serious injury from London’s streets. This is why we are redoubling efforts and outlining further measures to achieve this goal. 

Key new measures announced include: 

  • Accelerating the roll-out of the 20mph speed limit programme on TfL roads so that by 2024, 220km of TfL roads will have a 20mph speed limit. More information about the Lowering Speed limits programme can be found here:

Delivering a significant increase in speed enforcement undertaken by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to tackle the risk and harm caused by speeding. This will be done by increasing MPS capacity to enforce up to one million offences by 2024/25, introducing new technology to improve effectiveness of enforcement and rolling out new powers to Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) so that they can stop speeding vehicles and take enforcement action against drivers

  • Improving street safety for people motorcycling.
  • Publishing analysis showing how deprived communities and some ethnic groups suffer disproportionate road injuries

Tackling road danger is integral to a Healthy Streets approach. By making streets more people-friendly, accessible and attractive, TfL will create streets where people can enjoy making healthy lifestyle choices, reduce carbon emissions and help to clean up London’s air.

Key achievements since the plan was first launched in 2018 include the roll-out of the world-first Direct Vision Standard, introduced to reduce lethal blind spots on lorries, the delivery of 260km of safer, high-quality cycle routes and 100 Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, the improvement of 43 dangerous junctions, and the introduction of 322 School Streets, where roads are closed to traffic at certain times to encourage more children to walk, cycle or scoot to school. TfL’s world-leading Bus Safety Standard is achieving the greatest reduction in people killed or seriously injured per journey of any mode on the roads, with 77 per cent fewer people killed or seriously injured on, or by, a bus by the end of 2020 than in 2005-09.

All of these measures have delivered good progress as London has become safer for people walking and cycling in the past 10 to 15 years. Action on road safety has also made London’s streets progressively safer for children, with the number of under-16s killed or seriously injured on London’s roads 65 per cent lower in 2019 than in 2005-09.

Working together, we can take action with steps including:

  • Committing to Vision Zero 
  • Lowering speed limits to 20mph 
  • Reducing traffic on local streets for safer, greener roads with cleaner air to protect children and people walking and cycling 
  • Designing streets with safety in mind, to help everyone get around the roads safely and make active travel attractive 
  • Promoting and encourage ways to travel which pose less risk to other people on the roads 
  • Leading by example in committing to eliminating casualties on our streets, through own supply chains and fleets

HFCycling meeting 9 Feb 2021

H&F cyclists Feb 2021


Sebastian Dunnett – Ecology Officer, HF Climate Emergency Team.


Perunika Petkova

Pat Tookey – resident member of climate emergency commission. 

Nicky – pedal back cycling

Angela Grashoff – Hounslow cycle group.


Sebastian Dunnett is Visiting H&F cyclists to talk about Greenfest. The climate emergency commission & the council are keen to restart Greenfest.

Groups we might invite:

Dr Bike

Food stalls, 

Allotment society?


Friends of the earth


Climate emergency commission

Car Free Day

Any possibility of involving schools?

Universities in H&F?

Imperial College Greening team?

(Air pollution team at imperial college doing study on white city.)

Greenfest used to have a music stage, electricity, insurance from the council.   We rented tables etc from a company and then sublet them to the stall holders. 

Discussion on Furnival Gardens – Greenfest always used to be held in Furnival Gardens.  Most central, easiest to get to, point of the borough.  However, maybe  too small & difficult to get to with social distancing, Town Hall redevelopment blocking one of the underpasses, Dove Passage closed for social distancing etc.

Pedal Gives Back

Reconditioning bikes for people who otherwise would not cycle. 

Partnership with United Hammersmith & Fulham charities. 

Donations of abandoned bikes from SW railways.

Upcycles  are another group elsewhere in London doing the same. 

Free for people in need. To get people who wouldn’t usually cycle out on a bicycle.  

Application process up and running through United Hammersmith & Fulham charities. 

Referral thorough non profit groups in the borough. Aim for 50 people a year.

They were doing this in a small way last year with the food bank and a charity for children nearby.

Pat Tookey  suggested asking Westfield for more abandoned bicycles. 

Casey had a similar scheme to restore bikes for imperial.  

Raynaud’s syndrome

Lively discussion on the WhatsApp group about cold fingers & toes and electrically heated gloves.

This month is Reynaud’s & Scleroderma awareness week.

Can have a big impact – it puts Casey off cycling in the winter.   Fulham to Wimbledon – maybe 20 minute ride. Casey can find after 10 minutes his fingers get too cold and painful to cycle. Casey was first diagnosed by a friend.

Could possibly be a problem for other would be cyclists. 

Local Group Survey

LCC sends a survey out every year to ask what the local groups need and what our experience of the LCC is, what community outreach we have done,  rides etc. We will fill this in at a later date.

What would our members like of LCC & H&F cyclists?

King St Cycleway

Not much progress.  The Cycling Commission will meet next week. TFL may take over part of the project, to ensure Hammersmith Gyratory will be OK.

South Fulham Low Traffic neighbourhood. 

Area within the LTN has seen traffic fall by around 80%.  Plan to create a West Fulham LTN.

Wandsworth Bridge Road Residents don’t want to have traffic displacement.  They would like a cycle lane on Wandsworth Bridge Road, with one fewer lanes of traffic.  

Casey has met with the Wandsworth Bridge Road residents to discuss their plans and possible outcomes.



Present: Casey Abaraonye, Peri Abaraonye, Richard Duffill, Aidan Chisholm, Christian Wolmar, Henrietta Bewley, Beatrice Goater, Natalie Lindsey, Barney Stringer

Update from the council by Richard Duffill, LBHF Cycling Officer: Adult Cycle Training, Cycle Parking, E-scooters and E-bikes

Council had planned to book 6 Dr Bike sessions and cycle training for adults. Cancelled due to Covid19 restrictions

Aiden advised that Westminster council are looking at promoting cycle buddy scheme to help confidence of eg key workers cycling to work. LBHF would like to start this within the borough. HFCycling was looking at this before the rounds of restrictions came in and we will look to institute it when conditions allow.

Cycle parking. The borough successfully bid for funding for a further 200 more Sheffield stands. Most of these will be allocated around commercial hubs but if anyone has a request for a specific location please email

Beatrice Goater asked about parking for cargo bikes. LBHF looking at putting in anchor points in the ground, similar to motorbike. Looking at dedicated cargo bike parking unit. Regrettably Richard also informed us that a community charity delivering meals on e cargo bikes has been broken into. Council looking at storage container. If anyone has a request for a cargo bike parking unit please email us at

Looking at new cycle hub under the motorway in Hammersmith. This has been a long planned project. It is being built this spring.

Casey: Belgium and Holland have attended bike storage in shops in town or commercial centres. They allow people to park, shop, visit and use town centre facilities with ease and security.

Tfl announced that they have allocated money for bike parking. Richard suggested that this might be the pot of money they had just allocated, from which he had bid for funding for parking. We noted that ULEZ money can be used for sustainable transport.

King Street Safer Cycleway and Chiswick High Road

Hounslow temporary cycle lane mostly up and open.

King St will put in wands soon, including through Gyratory, to connect with Hounslow. Semi permanent. Will have adjustments to signals.

Henrietta asked about Goldhawk road and Uxbridge road temporary cycle lanes to join up with the Ealing semi permanent cycle lanes west from Acton. Richard Duffill said that the council was unable to remove enough car parking.

Natalie pointed out that there is no cycle provision at all in Fulham. Can we have a serious look at the Wandsworth Bridge Road? It needs proper protected lane. There is no alternative parallel route.

Casey also pointed out that New Kings Road has the highest number of cyclists in the borough and an abysmal safety record.

High Street Kensington – latest developments on the removed cycle lane

RBKC are reviewing the removal of cycle lane. They have been threatened with judicial review. 

 Cycle Buddy Scheme – Organising our participation 

This is an LCC initiative for people who are more confident and know routes to help new or returning cyclists. It is to help build road confidence and help plan and discover routes that might encourage independent riding. More details at

H&F cyclists had started leading gentle, shorter rides for less confident cyclists. All activities are suspended at present but you may register your interest for when they become available again.

Dr Bike and similar by LBHF, HFCycling, Oma Bikes, including bike registration and marking

Bike marking is sometimes done by the police. RD said Lyric theatre has bike marking kits. We strongly recommend that you register your bike as it not only enables cursory checks to see if a bike is marked as stolen but it allows the police to reunite a recovered bike with it’s owner. As proprietors of Oma Bikes, Casey and Peri register every bike they sell and have had success stories where clients’ stolen bikes have been returned to them by police following checking the register.

Please look for the frame number – often under the pedals. Go to and create an account to register your bike. You can use their free service or upgrade to their permanent marking kit which we recommend you put in a prominently visible location. If you have a bike that doesn’t have a frame number you can use permanent marker to put your post code and door number or other identifier on the frame.

Old Oak Park development – discussions with the planning authority

This covers the area Around Old Oak common and is a HS2 development. It is to provide housing and regeneration and Ealing, Brent and H&F LCC representatives met with senior figures from the Oak Park Development Corporation, the local planning authority. RD said that LBHF had also had meetings with the same authority and said that neither TfL nor H&F were satisfied. He said that none of Old Oak Common designs were accepted. Both LCC and RD concluded that they didn’t meet design standards; no strategic routes, not joined up, no idea where it was going etc. No planning for transport strategy to dedicated services. We had recommended that OPDC go back and start again.

 Fulham Low Traffic Neighbourhoods update

Sands End east, west, residents associations etc met in December with further meetings scheduled to continue in the future. Residents from the west are urging the council to implement an LTN on their side while residents from the east are working out the bugs and kinks with the council team. There remains opposition from various residents on both sides and the Wandsworth Bridge Road Association has taken up the position that Wandsworth Road should be made one way northbound with southbound traffic routed through Imperial and Townmead Roads.

Beatrice Goater pushed for one vehicle northbound lane Wandsworth Bridge road, cycle lane and bus lane, and one Southbound vehicle lane Imperial & Townmead Road, with a cycle lane and bus lane. Junction of Townmead road and Wandsworth Bridge Road has a limit of 400 cars an hour, so would reduce traffic capacity.

Doesn’t want yellow boxes on Wandsworth Bridge Road as they make the road more dangerous to cyclists.

Wandsworth Bridge Road is the local high street with shops and restaurants etc.  

The council at its last meeting with the residents showed what the impacts of current traffic flows are and how they would introduce both more traffic volume and greater stacking if this gyratory was implemented.

Casey pointed out that between reduced demand from an LTN on the west side and permanent streetscape interventions and redesign you could both reduce traffic and massively improve the feel and utility of the road.

Natalie Lindsey: campaign to get all the roads in the borough 20mph. Most are. The main roads used by cyclists – new kings road, Fulham road etc are 30mph.


H&F working on tender for e scooter trial. Council evaluating the tender submissions. 12 month trial. Choice between 2 or 3 suppliers across London. So users can ride the scooter across boroughs.

Will speed limit and are looking at technological applications that could vary the speed according to the area. This would allow for slower speeds in busier footfall areas and full restriction in pedestrianised squares and walks.

Hope to have first 100 scooters in April. Will increase numbers according to demand.

Those that already have them are finding most scooters are being hired 7 to 8 times a day.  

Meanwhile LBHF are in discussions with Police to crack down on private scooters (!)

Henrietta Bewley: Given that accidents are overwhelmingly caused by vehicles, shouldn’t we be limiting the speed of vehicles rather than e scooters?

Barney Stringer: all new cars will have speed limiters from 2025.

Cargo bike share/ hire: LBHF are looking at purchasing a dozen cargo bikes to rent. Some of the questions that arise include: Where do we store them? Need storage with electric charging points and if dockless, streetspace and clutter mnagement.

Hounslow already have a scheme up and running.

Beatrice Goater: Cargo bike. She uses one to take her children around. They got rid of their car.  Their children are 6 and 8 and big enough to cycle themselves, but the roads are too dangerous without cycle lanes.

The “Othering” of activists – Extinction Rebellion, Black Lives Matter and popular push back

Looking at how activists are now being tagged, labelled and dismissed we discussed the need to be aware of this form of silencing and to open the discussion on the de-representation of parties, bodies, groups using this approach. It is one of the tragic legacies of the last few years of mis- and dis-information. Please read this blog by Karen Liebreich as it applies to cyclists. It is being used against various groups seeking anything from parity, ecological responsibility or social equality.

The Othering of Cyclists

Rides status and outreach

Group rides are not allowed with Covid19. In the previous weeks it was allowed to go out in a pair – rules might have changed by the time you read this. At this time LCC is not organising or permitting any activity and no insurance cover is currently provided for any rides or cycle buddy schemes. Dr Bike type activities are still permitted subject to registration. HFCycling is not organising any of these at the moment.

HFCycling meeting 13/10/20

Present in Google meet:

Karen Miller

Casey Abaraonye (Chair HFCycling)

Peri Abaraonye (Communications & Management)

David Ford (Easy Ride Leader)

John Everard

Henrietta Bewley (Secretary)

Toby Hopkins (Cycle Buddies, Wandsworth LCC)

Low traffic neighbourhoods

John Everard – councils are coming under lots of pressure by motorists to remove LTN & the temporary cycle routes.

Council in talks with Brackenbury residents association and Hammersmith grove.  Council got funding from TFL for 6 cycle routes.  We don’t know which they are.

Casey – in S Fulham the council has cameras installed and working.  The council sends out PCN notices to motorists.  Traffic within the S Fulham LTN has fallen a lot – 90%???.   Non compliance rate started at 60%, now fallen to 30% of traffic – those who get a PCN. Now council looking at west side of Wandsworth road. Next they will look at Wandsworth bridge road itself.

Everywhere in the world  traffic has risen by 120 to 150%

Please write to your councillors to support cycle routes & LTN’s.  Please keep Making the case  for sustainable transport on social media. The council listens to what they hear on social media,  next door, in the newspapers etc.  We believe the silent majority want cleaner air and quieter streets, but to get them we need to be LOUD.

LCC elections & AGM etc

The AGM is on 28th October, and will be virtual.

Members can submit questions in advance.

3 LCC board members are up for election.

Neil Webster, who is standing for the board this year, has been very helpful to HFCyclists, RBCK LCC, Ealing and Hounslow.

LCC campaigners conference:

Also online, Tuesday Oct 20th, Wednesday Oct 21st, Tuesday Oct 27th, 18:30 to 20:30.

Lots of advice, tools, tips, discussions etc.

Campaigner awards

There is still time to nominate people for cycle campaigner awards.   Lots of Categories, for both LCC campaigners and people outside of the LCC, including: Best Campaign Initiative,  Campaigner of the Year,  Streetspace Council of the Year, Best Communication Initiative etc.

Casey is nominating Ken McCosh, for Community Outreach.  He has created a wonderful series of rides.  Once a month,  Ken takes people to places we haven’t been to before, exploring parts of London many didn’t know exist, and also has a wealth of historical information about the places we visit. These bike rides have helped reinvigorate the group and are attracting more and more riders.

Weekly bike Rides

The leisurely shorter rides on Sunday are also helping to give inexperienced and older returning cyclists more confidence. These are very popular for all ages – children to people over 80. Last Sunday we went to China Town to eat cake.

This Sunday – Monthly Leisurely Ride to Greenwich. Goes through some very nice areas and a nice market at the end. Start Pekoe Mellow tea shop in Brackenbury. If too tired to cycle both ways, can go home with the bike on the train.

This ride departs from Pekoe Mellow Tea House, 22 Aldensley Road, Hammersmith W6 0DH at 10am.

We will have a local pick up from Empress State Building, Lillie Road, West Brompton, SW6 1TR at 9.30am. If you wish to join from there please confirm on the WhatsApp group or text 07975612368.

To join this ride please book here 

We are comfortable with two groups of 6, so 12 in total.  We are hoping that the rule of 6 outdoors will continue to be OK for a while.

Cycle buddy scheme with Toby Hopkins.

Pairing experienced riders with inexperienced riders over 18.  One to one.  Our own Peri took Karen on a ride to find a good route for her to cycle with her son to school.  Not the same as bikeability and cycle training which is free from local authorities.

HFCyclists would love to set up cycle buddies. If you would like to volunteer to help a novice rider, please contact cycle buddies or  They are doing the same for K&C.  If there are enough volunteers in H&F, we could have our own group.

Please talk about this with as many people as possible,  and write about it in NextDoor, Covid response groups, parents chat rooms etc, so that the less confident riders get to know about it.


We now have a for immediate news sharing and informal discussion. As a chat group we suggest that if you join you may wish to consider muting your notifications in your group settings. Please click on this link to join: 

Our next local shorter ride will be on Sunday 4 October 2020. Start at Brook Green, W6 7BD beside the tennis courts by Dunsany Rd. These rides take place each Sunday, departing at 10am. Registration is required through our Eventbrite booking system. We also have a second group for spillover and marshalls. Note we are limited to 6 riders per group.

Group 1

Group 2

Mums for Lungs invite you to their next meeting, Wednesday 7 October, 8pm on Zoom. They will be pleased to grow participation from residents of Hammersmith and Fulham. Please sign up to their newsletter at if you want to hear about new campaigns. 

Research project on pollution seeks volunteers for study

A research project called INHALE, led by Imperial College London, with the University of Surrey and the University of Edinburgh University will assess the impact of air pollution on personal health in urban environments.

The project is now looking for healthy or asthmatic volunteers to participate in the study.

If you live in West London, find out more.


We were thrilled to have over 450 registered participants from around the world for the live Summit, 20-21 September 2020. All of the recorded plenary panels and Speakers Corner sessions are now available to access here.

They are in the process of adding the Speakers Corner and plenary panel recordings to the Car Free Day Vimeo Channel here.

Campaigner Awards


To reflect all the incredible work over the last year, we have changed the Campaigner Awards slightly this year. We are seeking nominations for new categories, including for external individuals and organisation.

Please take a look at the new categories, nominate your fellow volunteers and activists, and help us celebrate the amazing work you guys have done!

Deadline for nominations is midnight Sunday 11 October 2020, with the winners announced as part of the Campaigners Conference on Tuesday 27 October.

Webinar – A national Gear Change for cycling?

LCC’s Chief Executive, Ashok Sinha and other leading campaigners discussed DfT’s ‘Gear Change’ proposal to encourage cycling in England. It’s the most positive pronouncement on active travel ever, so can cycle campaigns sit back, and watch as the streets around them become places for people and not cars or do we need to crank up the pressure?

Panellists included:

Ashok Sinha, CEO London Cycling Campaign

Ruth Cadbury MP, Co-Chair All Party Parliamentary Group for Cycling & Walking

Chris Boardman, Greater Manchester’s Walking & Cycling Commissioner

Fran Graham, LCC’s Campaign Coordinator

You can see a round up of the discussion here:

Hfcyclists meeting September 8th 2020


Perunika Petkova

Casey Aberaonye

David Ford

Petrina Beaufoy HELM

Ken Mc Cosh 

On google meet, which seemed to work ok.

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods.

There is vocal, organised opposition to Low Traffic Neighbourhoods.  Everyone who has experienced a LTN would not go back to normal traffic levels.  Better air quality, less traffic, better quality of life.

There is one new LTN in S Fulham, on the East side of Wandsworth Bridge road.

At the moment Hammersmith bridge is closed, Vauxhall Bridge and Wandsworth bridge are being repaired so narrowed.

People in Sands End West are complaining that there is more traffic through their area.  We need people in Sands End to call for their own Low Traffic Neighbourhood to stop the extra traffic.  The people who are complaining are a minority (most H&F residents do not have a car), but they are very vocal.  We need the silent majority to become vocal supporters of Low traffic neighbourhoods.  

There is a link in the newsletter, to send an email to the councillors to support LTN.  Please fill in and send the email, and pass it on to as many people as possible.

Casey will circulate to WhatsApp groups and NextDoor.


Leo Murray – member of Possible, W6 families for Safe cycling etc, is running a campaign against the advertising (badvertising) of SUVs.

Please sign the petition and circulate.

These cars are 25% more polluting, kill and injure more people, and take up more space. They are popular because of the advertising that sells them as safe for the occupants, but ignores the reduction of safety for other road users.

More information:

Consultation on making the Highway code more cycle friendly

Closing date October 27th.

The LCC and other organisations have been successful in lobbying the Department of Transport to update the highway code with lots of cycle and pedestrian friendly changes.  Please participate in the consultation to strongly support the proposals.

School Streets

People should be walking, cycling, or scooting to school.  Most car journeys to school are less than half a mile.  These are ideal for switching to sustainable transport.

H&F council are trialling 13 schools. This will involve closure of part of the street outside the school, at drop off and collection times.

Residents and trades people can drive along the road.  

In some boroughs the council workers erect the barriers.  In some the children man the barriers.  It has been very successful where schools have championed the traffic free school streets.

If the parent tries to drive and has to park away from the school, and then leaves their car to walk their child to the school gates, they risk the parking attendants fining their car.  

Ken pointed out that Avonmoor school is on a busy road.  Here it might be possible to:

  1. Introduce a 10 mile an hour speed limit
  2. Have no stopping or pickup or dropoff.

This would make the road outside the school much safer.

Petrina Beaufoy pointed out that most parents with cars don’t want to put their children on bikes.  David pointed out that in Chelsea school children these days often come home on scooters.

Pollution inside a car is 140% higher than outside the car.  Driving kids half a mile to school is a waste of petrol, creates congestion, makes the roads dangerous for children to cycle, encourages children and parents to be lazy, and contributes to unhealthy lifestyles and killer air pollution.

A car hit children outside a Beatrix potter primary school in Earlesfield.  7 children and 2 parents were hit.  We need to encourage safer streets by stopping using vehicles near school.


Sunday rides.  

David, Casey & Ken have started a successful run of Sunday rides for the last 3 weeks from Empress State building North Fulham.  

Some small, short and local, 2 hours, 10 till 2pm.  

Huge success. Very positive response from the participants

2nd ride went to Chiswick Flower market – very busy – 20 minute wait to go in, but very good ride.  Almost entirely off main roads – small roads and long the river – plotted by Ken McCosh.

Peri is doing recci ride for one of the Sunday riders to find a suitable cycle route for her son to go to school.

We propose to run a ride every Sunday with a longer ride once a month.  Maybe an extra sunday when we could have 2 groups, or start a short ride, and then the keen cyclists could carry on?

David said there is a group of cyclists setting off from the design centre by Holland Park every Sunday 10 am  – they have 2 groups, one for a longer ride, and one for a shorter.

There was a discussion about starting our H&F Sunday rides from Brook Green, as being more central to H&F.

World’s Biggest Bike Ride- cycling UK

Saturday 12th September.  Please log on to Facebook and log how many miles you have done.  Aim to be the biggest big ride ever in the world.  Strava app – aiming for a million cycle miles. 

This could be an opportunity to ride the new cycle infrastructure? A critical mass to ride around Hammersmith and Fulham?  Casey will get in touch with Ealing, Hounslow, Better streets K&C, to ask what they are doing. Provisionally will meet on Brook Green, 10am. Near Dunsany Road.

Watch this space!

London to Brighton has been postponed till September 2021.

This Sunday 13th September:

Casey and Peri leading the ride. 10am – 12:00 Empress state building short ride, probably around H&F 

Note: In light of the Saturday ride we will not hold a ride on Sunday 13th.

20th September – long ride

Ken proposing one of 24 miles:  Round ride out west.   Along Grand Union Canal,  Cranford Park, South of Southall, Hounslow Heath, Crane River Park, Cafe Nellor Gardens, Home along river Thames from Twickenham.

Palace to Palace

The physical Buckingham palace to Windsor Castle 40 miles ride / walk is replaced this year by a virtual ride over 21st -27th September. Create your own cycling or walking challenge!

Like to ride Fulham palace to Windsor castle?  Remember that there is a train to come back from Windsor to Putney if you are too tired to ride back.

27th September Dave next ride – a suggestion to go to Greenwich market – 22 miles.

There was some discussion about starting the rides earlier – if we started at 9am a short ride would be finished at 11.  Petrine would like a Sunday afternoon ride, but everyone else has things to do in the afternoon, and would like to go out if anything earlier on a Sunday morning.

The LCC has increased the regulatory requirements for LCC insured rides.  The rides have to be advertised on the LCC website.  Dave has offered to do the risk assessment .  Casey, Peri, Dave and Ken will have a separate meeting to check the new leading LCC rides rules.  5pm Friday Brompton Cemetery.
