    Hi All, can I ask for the committee to consider and support the proposals for extending the permitted cycle paths through Wanstead Park. The intention is to create a safe cycling circuit especially suitable for families and also to provide through routes from the nearby Quietway to Wanstead and Ilford. Please see attachment.

    The Quietway already joins Valentines Park and Fairlop Waters and the addition of Wanstead Park will make an accessible ‘greenspace’ outing for lots of local people.

    I would be happy to join a committee meeting to explain more if needed – but I expect that you will already be familiar with the area.

    PS This proposal is particularly welcome to me because my children were frequently stopped from cycling through the park to their school and they were ordered off their bikes by the Epping Forest Officers who were riding MOTORBIKES!

    With thanks,

    Ian

      Hi Ian,
      We’re very supportive of new cycle routes – although Wanstead Park is outside of Waltham Forest. I think that’s Redbridge?
      The attachment didn’t come through – email me fred@wfcycling.org.uk and we can discuss how we can help and maybe put you in touch with some Redbridge based cyclists.
      It’s shocking that officers on motorbikes would stop children cycling to school – on what planet does that make sense.
      Kind regards,
      Fred
