Newhams youngsters protest to mayor about lack of cycle facilities

A group of Newham youngsters protested outside the Olympic Park on Saturday 19 March 2011 to bring attention to the poor cycling facilities in the borough.

Earlier in the week, staff and young people from the Watersmeet Woodcraft Folk club had expected to address Newham Council, but the Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales, refused them permission.

With no adequate cycling routes the young people had to navigate their way through very congested traffic.

Jasmine Forbes, who joined the protest, said: "We wanted to ask the mayor why the Cycle Superhighway wasn't allowed into Newham."

Suzannah Walker, chair of Newham Woodcraft added: “The borough now has a multi-million pound velodrome, but no safe way of cycling there.”

If you want to protest about the lack of support for cyclists in Newham, please contact the mayor here.
