The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea is hosting its first cycling forum on Wednesday 10 March, with local residents invited to give their views on how the council can "help make a difference for cyclists and let us know how we can improve cycling."
Speakers at the event, which starts at 6pm at the Mosaic Music Rooms, 226 Cromwell Road SW5 0SW, include Philip Darnton, chairman of Cycling England, and Tom Bogdanowicz, local campaigns manager at London Cycle Campaign.
Cycle parking will be available or for those using public transport, the nearest tube station is Earls Court and the 74, 328, C1 and C3 bus routes also pass close by.
Those wishing to go along to the forum are asked to confirm their attendance by sending an email to road.safety [at] rbkc.gov.uk or telephoning 020 7361 3766.
Current bike-friendly initiatives in the borough include a trial allowing cyclists to ride the wrong way down one-way streets, while earlier this month, work started on a scheme on Exhibition Road that will see it transformed into a naked street-style shared space.
