- Putney has a new Cycle Cafe! The Dynamo has opened on 200-204 Putney Bridge Road London, SW15 2NA.
- Spring has finally sprung and after a lovely long slumber, this website is now starting to be updated – look out for exciting new content.
- Jon Irwin has created the petition “Better, safer, people-friendly streets for Smallwood Road / Fountain Road residents” and wanted to ask if you could add your name too. If you find Blackshaw Road too frightening to use at the moment, the approach proposed in this petition should sort it. You can read more and sign the petition here.

A New Era For WCC
There are exciting changes afoot for the Wandsworth Cycling Campaign. In the beer garden of the Nightingale, Balham, WCC members decided to freshen things up a little, with a few changes designed to make it easier for new members to get involved. Cycling in the capital is booming, and we need your help to be as effective as we can locally.
There’s a number of ways you can get involved, keep informed about issues affecting cycling in the borough, and contribute your energy and ideas: check out our website, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and join our email group. Or if that all sounds a bit high-tech, just turn up at the pub for our monthly meetings – we’re always keen to see new faces. See below for details.
Our meetings are going to be cycling around the borough, so see us at your local soon! When we can, meetings are going to focus on issues and campaigns relevant to the area we visit.
We’ll also be starting a bit later in the evening to allow more people to make the meetings. Get in touch to share your ideas with us about what could be done to improve the cycling experience in your area – meetings will now be facilitated by different people each time, so you can get us talking about the issues that matter to you.
Out and about
WCC met local cyclists at Ravenstone Primary School’s Summer Fair in Balham in July, helping with basic cycle maintenance on the popular bicycle recycling stall.
LCC and WCC newsletter and communications
Both the LCC and WCC are changing the way they communicate with members. The main London Cyclist magazine is now being published quarterly rather than bi-monthly, so this newsletter is following suit. For more frequent communications from the LCC, make sure they have your current email address, by updating your record at http://www.lcc.org.uk/updatemyrecord.
We’d also like to say a big thanks to Jonathan for all his work editing the WCC newsletter over the last few years.
