We reverted back to Zoom for this meeting. Issues discussed were:
- Infrastructure developments in the light of our catch up meeting on 1 October with Newham Council and a meeting with the Royal Docks team who were putting together a walking and cycling strategy.
We have been asked to attend a workshop for the transport section of the revision of the Local Plan.
There is a ride of the south section of the Roding Way on Friday 29 October which is open to all.
Whilst low traffic neighbourhoods across the north of Newham make Quietway 6 less critical there is still a major safety issue at Temple Mills Lane and we should be wary of supporting signing this as a safe cycleway.
- John outlined the initiative he was taking for outreach in the Plaistow area and in conjunction with Living Streets. We discussed ideas for progressing this in the new year and in particular the implications of supporting a cycle buddy scheme.
- In addition to the Roding ride on 29 October we are planning support sessions for the Ambition, Aspire, Achieve children’s cycle club on 6 and 20 November, a Fix Your Ride at Woodgrange Market on 13 November and a local ride in association with GoParks on 14 November.
- We will be looking to put on a Christmas lights Ride on 12 December and a Christmas Social sometime in the second week of December
If you would like further information on any of the matters raised at this meeting or any other local cycling matters please get in touch.
