Monday 20 February announcement (and more!)

by bikesalive

STAND BY YOUR BIKES! The next Kings Cross Bikes Alive event is after the usual fortnightly interval, on Monday 20 February. But please note the start time is half an hour later, since some would-by Bikes Alivers are continuing to have trouble getting to Kings Cross by 6pm.

Further news and information will follow shortly – once the website person has completed their flu recovery.

Urgent last-minute notification

Many of you will already have picked up on this: but in case you haven’t, note that there’s a memorial ride for Henry Warwick this evening (Friday 10 February). He was a well-loved member of the bike courier community, and was killed by a coach (just a week ago) at the junction of Bishopsgate and Wormwood Street, in the City. Fellow couriers – and some others – will be meeting at The Foundry [albeit that the famous pub of that name closed a while back], Great Eastern Street, near the junction with Old Street, EC2.

Please note that it’s a memorial ride, not a protest; but it’s expected to include a go-slow to the site of the death. The start time is not too clear, but it’s unlikely to set off much before 7pm!
