Have you been out in the Lea Valley lately? I can’t really recommend the tow paths on weekends as they get too busy, but if you venture North a bit further into the Lea Valley Park, just beyond the M25, there is pleny of space and beatiful views to be had!
On Sunday 1 September, Enfield Cycling Campaign will again be running a try-a-bike area at Palmers Green Festival on behalf of Cycle Enfield. Try-a-bike will be bigger and better than ever! Whether you want to try an electric bike, a three-wheeled trike, a folding bike, a tandem, a cargo bike – or find a solution for carrying young children – there will be a bike for you! And we will have a large range of bike for children and teenagers.
This very popular festival runs from 12 noon to 7pm – as usual we’ll be in the tennis courts with a range of other bike-related activities. This is all completely free of charge. Come and find us, ready for some fun, and possibly the start of a new you!
Transport for London (TfL) are proposing changes to the A10 junction with Lincoln Road at Bush Hill Park, in preparation for Cycle Enfield’s east-west cycle route. TfL says, “These proposals are part of a wider TfL programme to encourage people to choose to cycle or walk in Enfield, which is being implemented by Enfield Council in partnership with us.”
This week in Enfield our hearts have been broken. We’re shocked and saddened by all the deaths on London’s roads; but especially by the death of 30-year-old Anita Szucs, killed in a hit-and-run while cycling home on a residential road in Edmonton.
Cycle Enfield’s opponents, having exhausted the legal process via three failed court appearances, are resorting to personal attacks on the cabinet member responsible. Helen Osman has made bizarre accusations of “racism” against Cllr Anderson on her website, N21 Online; a shopkeeper has sent the council a petition calling for his dismissal; and police advised him to cancel his latest ward forum after a hostile email about him from the chair of FERAA (a local residents’ association) to its members. It’s also come to light that verbal abuse directed at Cllr Anderson at an exhibition of the A105 designs was actively encouraged by at least one leader of the anti-Cycle Enfield campaign.
