(Tea and coffee, a chance to chat, and for us to introduce ourselves to new members for the first half-hour. The meeting proper starts at 8 pm.). Cycle video activism. A number of our members have recently taken to installing a handlebar-mounted video camera on their bikes, in order to demonstrate the problems of poor driving standards, as well as thoughtless provision, which cyclists encounter daily on the roads. The cyclists will be speaking about their experiences, demonstrating the kit, and taking your questions and ideas.
