London Cycling Campaign to hold fundraiser at Look Mum No Hands! Café

A fundraising evening in support of the London-wide campaign, Space for Cycling, is to be held at the Look Mum No Hands! café on Tuesday the 7th October. Photographer Ivan Coleman will be on hand to take professional pictures of people and their bikes in return for a small donation

Space for Cycling is a London Cycling Campaign initiative which was launched last summer in the wake of a series of cyclist deaths. It has since expanded throughout the country with the aim of influencing both local and national politicians.

In April and May of this year, efforts were made to outline over 600 cycling-specific demands to candidates standing in London’s local elections and 45 per cent of councillors are now said to support Space for Cycling. Phase two of the campaign is to try and ensure that those who promised to create the needed changes will actually deliver.

This week’s fundraiser will see Coleman – a keen cyclist himself – taking pictures of people and their bikes in return for donations. The photos will then be sent in a digital format in a high resolution suitable for printing.

Photos will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis, with the café open as usual, serving food and drinks. Look Mum No Hands! is just off Old Street roundabout in East London with a large Space for Cycling sticker in the window. The event starts at 5pm on Tuesday the 7th of October.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.

Just off Old Street Roundabout !???

Its ON Old Street which as a cyclist is relatively easy to spot - it is a major East-West cycle route not selected by Tfl and designated as a Cycle Superhighway but by public demand as the best route from Hackney to work and other activity in Central London.

TfL might do well to work like a few smarter thinking road planners when developing cycle routes* - look at what cyclists are doing now! Look Mum has a great grandstand view of this traffic from the seats at the 'bar' at the front window, and you'll see every type of cyclist rolling past as you munch away of swill down a beer, and you can even get bikes fixed at the small bike workshop on the premises.

*Sorting the choke point where Clerkenwell Road crosses the widened lines bridge was the site of guerrilla action by London cyclists recently to re-use the wide footway created by reducing the road width to 2 narrow lanes, greatly reducing the conflict of large vehicles and cyclists trying to fit into a substandard lane width on the remaining carriageway.
