With only three of us attending this loop ride from Dulwich Clock Cafe to Osterley House, is the writing on the wall for Cyclists in Southwark? Certainly not! Because, for us, cycling is not so much a competitive sport as a game of bike politics! Like opposition parties, just because we don't get many votes doesn't mean we can't temper the extremes of those who oppose us.
There was a fourth rider who failed to find the Dulwich Clock Cafe but said he would have better idea of where it was on future rides. We know there were far more people who attended the Lewisham Cyclist' ride to Windsor the following day - but how many of those were simply tactical voters, attending a non-preferred ride simply to stop a rival candidate from having too much political power?
