On the day:

Please try to arrive promptly by 6pm. The numbers are likely to be even higher than on the first Bikes Alive event (which involved around 200 people, including pedestrians), and it’s obviously very important that we try to stay together, for maximum impact. We need to make it clear that the current lethal priorities of Transport for London will not be tolerated, and if the only way an existing road system can be made safe is to take it over and exclude motor vehicles – at least for an hour! – so be it… We assume that the police presence will be as friendly and accommodating as it was last time; though if you were to have any problem then you should ring some helpful local solicitors (Hodge Jones Allen: tel 07659 111192).

And remember that we’re expecting pedestrians (including many Kings Cross locals, who also suffer from the current road system in the area) to be part of the action. So please don’t be too cycle-centric, and be prepared to move – or not move – at a pace which suits them too! Since we’re trying to change the balance on our roads to a more human and more humane one, do come with a smile on your face, and in good voice.

Don’t forget to use the weekend to spread the word to all your cycling friends! If Bikes Alive continues to grow, we can target more places, more often – but that depends on you.
