The London Cycling Campaign (LCC) has issued an appeal for cyclists of all persuasions to join it for a photoshoot at its offices near London Bridge on Saturday 21st January - not the 14th, as originally advised, due to "unforeseen gremllins."
LCC is inviting the capital’s cyclists, with or without a bike, to join it at its office at 2 Newhams Row, London, SE1 3UZ between 1pm and 4pm to get their portrait taken by a professional photographer to help publicise its Go Dutch campaign.
It promises that the portrait will only take five or ten minutes of your time – although it adds that “Hopefully, you'll have time for a cup of tea and a chat too.”
Attendees are promised a “a high-quality studio-style portrait for your collection (if you want one).”
Go Dutch, LCC’s main campaign in the coming month, “is calling on the mayoral candidates to pledge to make London a more liveable city for everyone by making our streets as safe and inviting for cycling as they are in Holland.”
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
