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.
We are keeping you informed via our monthly newsletter. Read past editions, just join us to receive it.
We are holding regular members meetings. Meet us in the Trent House for a drink and a cycle chat.
Strategic Cycle Routes
Engaging decision makers
We are engaging (with) decision-makers by
- asking Councillors to support Space for Cycling in 2014
- holding the Love Cycling Go Dutch conference in 2013
- giving a council address in 2013
- inviting them to the 4C bike ride in 2012 and 2011
- carrying out surveys
- handing over petition in 2010
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
Working with the media
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!
