Enfield Press Release - Find out more about Cycle Enfield


Local residents and businesses will be able to have their first look at Enfield Council's ambitious plans to revolutionise cycling in Enfield at a series of exhibitions due to start in February.

Enfield Council was awarded £30 million to transform cycling across the borough by the Mayor of London, and these exhibitions will give residents a chance to find out more about the proposed projects in their area, ahead of a full and extensive public consultation on the project later in the year.

The first event will take place at the Fox Public House in Green Lanes, Palmers Green on Wednesday 11 February. 

Other events will be held at the Dugdale Centre in Enfield on Tuesday 17 February, Community House in Fore Street, Edmonton, on Monday 2 March and the Ordnance Unity Centre in Hertford Road, Enfield, on 2 April. For the convenience of local residents, these exhibitions will all run from 3-8pm.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety, Cllr Chris Bond, said: "This is an opportunity for residents to see our exciting proposals for Cycle Enfield, ask questions about them and provide their own early views on challenges and opportunities."

"We have attracted significant investment into our borough and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to revolutionise cycling in our borough."

"Enfield Council is absolutely committed to improving our cycling network, transforming our borough for residents and getting more people on their bikes therefore improving air quality and their health, and Cycle Enfield will be integral to that process."

The project aims to transform cycling in Enfield by providing a network of cycle routes including protected cycle lanes on some main roads and routes through parks and quieter streets.

Town centres will be rejuvenated with improvements to paving, pedestrian facilities and street furniture as well as provision for safer and easier cycling.

Secure on-street cycle parking and cycle 'hubs' will be provided to  enable cyclists to park their bikes, get their bikes fixed, buy a recycled bike and make it easier for them to travel around the borough.

The project has its own website at www.cycleenfield.co.uk<http://www.cycleenfield.co.uk> Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CycleEnfield and Twitter @Cycleenfield where you can keep up with all the cycling activities Enfield already provides.
