On Monday 1 May 2013 Brent Cyclists held its biggest meeting to date. About 35 people turned up to the plush Sala Room in the Crown Moran Hotel, Cricklewood, for the launch of Brent Cyclists' Cycling Plan for Brent, and to hear London's Cycling Commissioner, Andrew Gilligan, talk about The Mayor's Vision for Cycling in London and answer questions.
