Slow Roll and Candlelight Vigil

Suzanna Bull
Monday, October 9, 2017 - 17:00

On Monday 16th October, there will be a slow roll and candlelight vigil in remembrance of cycle users killed on Birmingham's roads, most recently Suzanna Bull at the junction of Pershore Road and Priory Road. (Event page with details here). Push Bikes is helping to let people know about event. A petition is available for you to sign as a mark of protest.

There are various times and places you can join the event, as follows:

Groups leaving from Birmingham Children's Hospital (BCH) (where Suzanna Bull was a doctor) between 1700 and 1730. Gathering on the corner of Whittal Street and Steelhouse lane, so that non-BCH people could join if they like. Depending on numbers, the earlier groups may be a "slow roll" to UoB; that is, taking normal roads, with a large number of cyclists, with dignity and respect, and lawfully, but inevitably causing some disruption. A later group will be leaving at 1730 and taking folk to UoB via the canal. This will be faster - not a sprint, and well within a gentle pace - but this bit won't be intended to be (that) disruptive. All of us would then be meeting the larger event at UoB, details of which you can find on Facebook. Folk who can join later could come direct to UoB for 1800, join the larger ride as it makes its way down the A38, or meet the vigil on Pershore Road at 1900.
