I can't quite work out why LDN Bike Swarm are also organising a "swarm the Olympic lanes" ride at 6pm tomorrow?
Left hand/right hand....
Not been on one of these for ages.......
I'm always doing a ruddy Offine so can't make it along, but if someone would like to shoot some pics I could use for the section on urban75, I'd be very grateful.
I went to one last month for the first time in about a year....I was surprised at how big it was. Loads of people turned up....I guess it's "summer" though.
Come along! This one promises to be extra fun...
I can probably take some pics - I'll have a camera with me so I'll see what I can do.
We will have to see.....
Probably be along for this. That FB event seems to have been disappeared
They are clamping down on protest. Be prepared.
That's because they're shutting bridges and roads left, right and centre - hardly surprising and all that
Start North of the river then
not aware of any bridges being closed to cyclists.
Not sure who theyre closed to but it would hardly be surprising
They are all open to cyclists.
Thinking of getting down for the first time in bloody ages, with my wife and a mate if possible
Taxi protest banned: http://content.met.police.uk/cs/Sat...goBlobs&blobwhere=1283570003914&ssbinary=true
They really have banned protest imo. Good luck.
A second/additional start point of Picadilly Circus is rumoured...
I'm not quite sure how they could stop 500-1000 cyclists getting over the river....without blocking off the road to all traffic and pedestrians, causing even more road chaos!
For the record, I went to the monthly motorbike protest on Wednesday at Traf Sq. We were told we faced arrest if we protested, basically.
Maybe they will close the road. Maybe some will get across. Wouldn't be surprised if things turn nasty though. London is absolutely heaving with coppers atm.
critical mass is not a protest.
Jaffa Cake is not a biscuit.
Has anyone got a tool to tighten the nut on a crank you can bring along tonight? My crank came off this morning.
sorry mate, I don't have one.
Someone ratcheting up the pressure on Indymedia:
FIT squad out, old bill on tannoy, military choppers in the sky.
Oh and a TSG van
The explosion of free gonzo pron on the interwebs must have been a big blow to sweaty-palmed smutmongers like this fellow, forcing them to take really tawdry jobs to make ends meet, like pimping out their cameras to the filth.
