For the Data Freak
We have links to maps and data sets outlining collisions, traffic levels, roads, routes and infrastructure, Space4Cycling and more on our website at
where you can see details of crashes and road schemes over much of the land, in great detail.
Want more Bikehangars?
Camden is looking for locations where these are needed. If you have nowhere safe, accessible and weather-proof to store your bike, but there might be room to install one of these on the street, contact Angela Hobsbaum (firstname.lastname@example.org), who will pass your request on to Camden.
This is what they look like:
Need Better Bike Parking?
Ever needed to leave your bike outside a shop, cafe, or cinema but there are no racks nearby? Camden are putting in a lot more racks on the street, but if you know a place which could do with more, please email Angela Hobsbaum with precise details of the location.
Report incidents that almost result in a collision on https://collideosco.pe
That way the local authority can be informed and statistics can be reported. The Bespoke project is a partner in this scheme.
Future Meetings and Events
We’d love to hear your ideas for future meetings, guest speakers, rides and other events. Join us at a meeting and let us know or email Angela with your suggestions.
