Newham Cycling Councillor

“Cycling Services
Newham’s Cycling Officer can help you find safe cycle routes to work or school and organises cycle training.

Cycle lanes
To help cyclists, we are introducing a network of cycle lanes throughout the borough. There is a map showing our proposed routes, available from local libraries, council offices and other public places. You may also want to order a free copy of one of Transport for London’s London Cycle Guides. Call TfL’s 24-hour travel information service on 020 7222 1234 or complete the London Cycle Guide online order form. Guides 6 and 11 cover Newham.

Parking your bike
We are currently introducing new cycle parking facilities across the borough so that there will be somewhere to secure you bike at your destination. These will be at places such as railway and DLR stations, shopping centers and other popular sites in Newham.

The Greenway
We are not neglecting those who want to cycle in their leisure time either. With the Greenway offering a traffic free east-west route across the borough, leading to the Lea Valley Way, you can cycle all the way to Waltham Abbey!

Bike by train
And remember you can take your bike on the Barking-Gospel Oak line enabling you to commute all the way to Hampstead Heath via the Lea Valley. For more information contact Silverlink Trains on 0845 601 4867.

Looks like me and him will chat on taboo subjects like:-

1) Where can I find secure cycle parking with CCTV?
2) The lack of being able to take bikes on trains at Stratford?
3) Why are buses allowed to use the roundabout by Chobham Road?

etc etc.

    Let’s get this knowledge on the virtual planet!
    Spread the idea if you think it a good one.
