CTC, London Cycling Campaign and Cyclenation are holding the 2nd 'Space for Cycling' joint meeting in Sheffield at the Showroom & Workstation on Saturday 25 January.

'Space for Cycling' Sheffield Meeting Agenda is available to view (please see attachment below)

Space for Cycling is a campaign aimed at mobilising the cyclist vote and raising the profile of cycling preceding the local elections in May 2014 and the general elections in 2015. 'Space for Cycling' was created by the London Cycling Campaign and is now being adopted and by CTC and other cycling organisations.

Within London, the London Cycling Campaign’s ‘Space4cycling’ campaign is focussed on the London Borough elections in May 2014.  It aims to secure commitments from borough candidates to local measures to deliver Space4Cycling, including 20mph limits, traffic-calmed or traffic-free routes and greenways, routes to school, or dedicated space on main roads.

Outside London, we will be focussing not only on securing commitments to ‘Space4Cycling’ but also the ‘Funding4Cycling’ needed to deliver this.  It will involve pressing councils and councillors to commit to ‘Space4Cycling’, but also to work with cycle-friendly councils and councillors to secure funding for this from Government and the national political parties, as they prepare their manifestos for the 2015 elections.

Crucially though, ‘Space4Cycling’ is also a major opportunity to boost involvement in local cycle campaigning and campaign  groups, and indeed to help new campaign groups to form in areas of the UK where these are currently lacking.

If  your group would like to get involved with these key campaign for 2014, please send someone along to Sheffield on the 25th to find out more. 

The minutes from the first meeting, which took place on 16 December 2013 in Birmingham, are also attached below.

This event is for CTC Right to Ride Representatives, CTC groups and affiliate groups, Cyclenation groups and London Cycle Campaign members only.
