Just picked up this news:

The wrangle between a Kingston environmentalist and the Metropolitan Police over the legality of monthly bike rides in the capital could be taken to the House of Lords.

Cyclist Des Kay plans to take the Critical Mass Cycle Ride dispute further after the Court of Appeal’s decision today.

Two out of three judges overturned a High Court ruling that the rides do not need to have prior permission from the police.

Des, environmental campaigner of the year at the Green Guardian Awards in 2006, challenged the Met in June 2006 over claims the events were unlawful and that people taking part could face prosecution.
