Action!

And here’s the kind of action the Campaign gets up to:

Space for Cycling

In 2014, we are getting everyone involved with the nationwide Space4Cycling campaign. Write to your Councillor and ask them to support Space for Cycling.

Newsletter

We are keeping you informed via our monthly newsletter. Read past editions, just join us to receive it.

Holding meetings

We are holding regular members meetings. Meet us in the Trent House for a drink and a cycle chat.

Strategic Cycle Routes

We are keeping the focus on the construction of Strategic Cycle Routes (SCR) in Newcastle. You can help us with giving us your comments on the SCRs

Engaging decision makers

We are engaging (with) decision-makers by

Cyclescape

We are trialling Cyclescape to keep track of our hotspot campaigning locations. Register with Cyclescape and get involved.

Data and analysis

We have a watchful eye on cycle data. For example, we want to see a good monitoring regime (locations and cycling levels) in Newcastle and to illustrate data coverage and gaps. We have created these maps

Bikes on Metro

We want bikes to be allowed on the Metro

Acitivities from previous years

In 2013 we ran youReport
In 2012 we investigated ‘getting people cycling’

Working with the media

We write press releases and try to keep track of news articles

Responding to consultations

We are also keeping a watchful eye on Newcastle City Council’s traffic orders and replying to consultations as necessary and as time and resources allow. See the Consultation Replies

And – being a community group entirely made up of volunteers – we are always looking for enthusiastic people who have some spare time, a hobby or professional skill they would like to bring to the campaign – engineering, marketing, design, teaching – you name it!
