Bikers Prepare To Lap London!

- Preparations nearly complete for huge ride-out around M25 - Rally comes before Westminster City Council is taken to the High Court by Campaign Group

June 16, 2010 - PRLog -- Motorcyclists are expected to rally in their thousands this weekend to complete a full lap of the M25 before heading in to the centre of London to gather in protest at Westminster City Council’s parking ‘tax’ – a £100/yr levy that is to be challenged in the High Court on Thursday 24th.

The No To Bike Parking Tax Campaign, led by Warren Djanogly, has been fighting the charges in Central London for a year and a half, and have succeeded in preventing the spread of charges for powered two wheelers beyond Westminster - a plan that was being led by Westminster through a group called ‘Partners in Parking’ – as well as forcing Westminster to drop the charge by 1/3.

Over the past 18 months the campaign group has held major demonstrations in the capital as well as prompting thousands of objections to the charge – objections campaigners say have been ignored by councillors determined to retain a new source of revenue.

The councillors have come under further pressure after figures compiled by the council showed a loss of over £450,000 due to the scheme’s costs, prompting accusations they were 'fiddled', as the charge made over £3million the previous year.

The ride-out is expected to attract huge numbers and will complete a full lap starting and finishing from the Ace Café off the A40, passing through Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent, Sussex, Surrey, and Berkshire before returning to the Ace Café for a parade into Central London.

Warren Djanogly, Chairman of the Campaign, said:

“This event will be truly spectacular, and will send a clear, unambiguous message to those in a position of power that bikers are a force to be reckoned with, and they will not roll over and be used as a cash-cow by councils across the country. We encourage any biker who cares about riders’ rights to join us on this fantastic day out!’
