Why should cyclists use Twitter? Blog
Some say Twitter is a waste of time. It is, however, the world’s largest global conversation and is a very effective way for cyclists to network, campaign and communicate.

Case Study

Blackpool Boathouse Youth
Boathouse Youth Blackpool
Back in 2009, the CTC community cycling offering was in its infancy and Boathouse Youth (BHY) was just beginning its work in the deprived community of South Shore, Blackpool, an area which is in the worst 1% of most deprived wards in the country.

CTC were funded by the Lancashire County Council Gateway programme to deliver Community Cycle Clubs in partnership with "Healthy Streets". Over the first eighteen months 23 community cycling projects were identified and supported through the work of CTC Cycling Development officer Damian Bonsall.

Project Objectives

Community Cycle Club

CTC has evidenced that cycling can play a major role to address the impact of social, economic and health inequalities across the United Kingdom. CTC believes that to get more people cycling across the UK there is need to deliver tailored projects that can introduce cycling to communities across geographical regions in an inclusive and sustainable manner.  

A Community Cycle Club represents a group of people who organise and participate in a regular cycling activity for the benefit of their existing members or as a service to the wider community.  The cycling activity can be on-road, off-road, cycle maintenance or even arts based.  The group of people may already meet for reasons specific to their local needs e.g. a youth support group, or have formed as a result of their desire to establish a regular cycling activity for benefit of the local community.
