Winning the right to cycle on Llandudno Promenade

Roy Spilsbury shares his experience of fighting and winning a campaign to allow cyclists to ride along the Llandudno Promenade.
Roy Spilsbury on Llandudno Promenade

Retirement didn't mean cyclist and CTC Local Cycle Campaigner Roy Spilsbury was going to relax. He felt rage at a rather ridiculous proposal by his local council to keep cyclists off the spacious promenade in Llandudno. The Council wanted to force cyclists to cycle on congested main roads rather than by the seaside, so Roy launched a successful campaign to get them to change their minds.

Brighton’s successful North Laine contraflow scheme

Becky Reynolds grew up cycling. Her Mum taught her to ride at an early age, so cycling has been and integral part of her life for as long as she can remember. What changed this everyday self-described 'utility cyclist' into a campaigner and co-founder of Cycle Lewes, an active campaigning group?
Becky Reynolds, "One Way, No Way!" Campaigner

This month CTC has launched the national Space for Cycling campaign with the vision of making it safe for anyone to cycle anywhere in the country.

Both experienced campaigners and thousands of everyday people are taking part by sending emails via our website www.space4cycling.org.uk challenging Councillors all over the country to pledge their support. United, we're confident change can happen, as it has in examples all over the country, including Brighton.

Southampton ‘Dutch-Style’ cycle junction system prompts debate

Southampton Council has, with best intentions, introduced a new ‘cycle-friendly' junction. However many cyclists, including a local cycle campaign group, aren't so sure.
Southampton Crossroads

CTC member Richard Haynes contacted CTC's Campaigns Team to highlight a recently-built and so called ‘cycle-friendly' junction that links the Saltmarsh Road with the A3025, west of the Itchen Bridge in Southampton. According to Richard, it isn’t all it's cracked up to be. Local cyclists are disappointed as many attempts were made by the Southampton Cycling Campaign (SCC) to point out the flaws.
