Local Cycle Campaigning

Portsmouth - A City to Share

In response to a challenge from the Leader of Portsmouth City Council Cllr Donna Jones, Portsmouth Cycle Forum has just launched 'A City to Share', its strategy to put safe cycling at the heart of Portsmouth’s transport policy.

The strategy was launched to an enthusiastic response from Cllr Donna Jones and other city leaders on Monday 3 November. The busy launch event was attended by representatives from local schools and businesses as well as many councillors and parliamentary candidates.

The strategy document sets out a vision for the city where there is space for cyclists, drivers and pedestrians to co-operate and treat one another with courtesy and respect.

What a difference a mayor makes!

It’s so great to be involved with a good, confident campaign group, says Leicester campaigner Elizabeth Barner.
Leicester cycle campaigners

One week ago, the Leicester Cycling Campaign Group heard about a petition against a proposed cycle lane in Leicester. They decided to call a demonstration in support of the lane, and in support of a more rational use of space in our city – for people, not for cars. They wanted to physically show the support there is, and the number of people willing to come out in the cold to say, "Yes, we will benefit from change." Campaigning can feel so bleak when it’s all about "No".
