Steve and Ruth-Anna had never heard of each other before Thursday 5th July, but ‘met’ via Twitter, both complaining about the towpath closure. Like many other local residents, Steve and Ruth-Anna both rely on the towpath to get to their respective places of work.
Steve had started printing posters to gather support for a campaign against the towpath closure. A Facebook group, Twitter campaign @OpenOurTowpath, well over 300 Londoners, one letter to the Mayor and a 50-strong demonstration later, here we are! Just a bunch of people who love and use the canal, wanting to keep on using it.

What we are not:
We are NOT an anti-Olympics protest group
We are NOT supporters only of off-road cycle paths. Cyclists have as much right as any other road users to be there, and we look forward to the time that feels like the case in London!
