Eagle-eyed readers will spot this in the latest minutes from the Cycling Liaison Group: “The group were advised that there was some money available for cycling parking in the borough.”
Yet we had this discussion in November last year. And that followed an extensive email chain, as well.
So, in nearly a year, £12,000 has been sitting around for the asking, available to be spent on much needed parking for bicycles. Because parking a bicycle in Richmond isn’t getting easier: on a visit this lunchtime, people had resorted to leaving bikes outside the shops themselves, because there was no other space easily available.Heaven forfend that you might want to come into Richmond with anything more than two wheels, because it’s hard enough to park them. Still, at least there were car parking spaces available!
