Rent a safe place for your bike

Today is the day that applications open for the bike stores in our area. If you're a local resident and would like to rent a secure on-street parking space for your bike, visit the Cyclehoop website.

Most households in Lambeth do not own a car, and the percentage of car-less households is growing. Cycling to work has tripled in the last ten years. Our streets are mainly quiet and a good place to get comfortable on two wheels, before you brave the hectic Brixton Road and Clapham Road on either side.

If you live, work or study in Lambeth you can book a free one-to-one cycle confidence training session, suitable for experienced cyclists, beginners or families. To book a one-to-one lesson telephone 0845 373 0337 or visit www.cycleconfident.com/sponsors/lambeth.

What other improvements do you think might encourage even more people to feel confident to choose 'active travel' (cycling or walking) for everyday journeys?
