Protest organiser Christopher Coleman has sent us his final update before the planned May 4 protest ride to Westminster. Over 4000 bikes are expected to descend on the capital to protest about planned anti-biker legislation – here’s how you can take part.
There are also some links at the end of this update which should take you to all other current documentation which includes maps, meeting points, times, letters, etc, without the need to sign on or register.
This is the situation:
Meeting points throughout the England have been published and marshals have been selected.We are unable to use a Park near to Westminster as a stopping point, because according to the Royal Parks Agency there is no unpaid parking anymore and certainly not enough for more than a few bikes, paid or unpaid.
However we will still have the ride-in from the Ace Café, through Westminster, to No. 10 and then returning to the Ace. We will present out pamphlet at No. 10.Personally I would like see everyone there, this is a good chance good to show some solidarity.
Marshals will be provided with yellow bibs so you can easily identify them, please follow them and/or respect their guidance, the number of marshals will grow as we approach London.
Some people have said they don’t know High Beech, so here are some tips on how to get there. When you arrive at High Beech you will see a pub called the King’s Oak, there is a large area and a side road which can be used for parking, and a nice burger and soft drinks bar is adjoined to the pub.
We’ll then ride to the Ace Café on the North Circular where we’ll stop to group up and refuel. You can check out the Ace Café website at http://www.ace-cafe-london.com/.
Please be especially careful. We don’t want any mishaps and remember that riding in a group requires the usual high level of concentration.
There follows a list of marshals, which may grow a little before the day. If you have further questions, or if you want to share the marshalling from any point, please contact the appropriate marshal or myself.
We strongly need a second marshal for the High Beech to Ace Café section.
