Pedal Powering Ahead
Pedal Power Kennington, the new community cycling project based in the former Lilian Baylis School, has really appealed to the local teenagers and younger children over the summer. Open a couple of afternoons a week, this was the queue awaiting the mechanics who are helping repair bikes and teaching cycle maintenance.
Some work on their own bikes, others on bikes donated by individuals or organisations (including the South Bank Employers Group which has many fine aspects to it). Well done to TfL for providing the funding to kick-start the project and to Lilian Baylis pupils and staff and Citizen Schools for initiating it in the first place.
It's great to see more young people riding their bikes more.
Boos to those who broke in and nicked a few tools and a couple of bikes.
