It looks to be a spectacular Bank Holiday Weekend, weatherwise. Here are 3 reasons you should consider spending tomorrow (Sunday) doing RideLondon 2023.

In our opinion, the number one reason to do the ride is so you know a safe, quiet route from Bromley into London. The Bromley feeder ride starts at Bromley South train station at 8.30am. The Bromley feeder ride includes cyclists of all abilities.

The second reason to do it is because it’s an opportunity to see your city and cycling in a completely different way. Experiencing our streets as they could be if they weren’t dominated by cars, and seeing that cyclists really do come in all shapes and sizes and are ordinary people. This last point is important given the media stereotypes of cyclists as MAMILs (middle aged men in lycra). People who cycle are normal people getting from A to B. That’s what the RideLondon FreeCycle is all about.

We’re a campaign group so our third reason is focused on our goals, which you can read about at Last week Bromley came at the bottom of London Cycling Campaign’s Climate Safe Streets report. Bromley Council is simply not delivering schemes to decarbonise streets. Read the report and then join us and other Bromley residents in trying to turn things around. Getting in the saddle tomorrow could be your first step in making our borough a better place to live for now and for the future.

One last thing. The Bromley feeder ride organisers would love to hear from you if you could consider volunteering as a marshall for their ride. Get in touch with us at bromleygroup AT if you’re interested. Do it for the kids.
