The benefits of local campaigning

We take a brief look at what local campaigners can do to boost political support for cycling in their area.
East Sussex CTC and 1066 Cycle Club writing to councillors

Since last April, over 17,000 emails have been sent to incumbent councillors as part of the national Space for Cycling campaign - calling for safer infrastructure conditions so that people of all ages and abilities can cycle.  In places with strong campaign groups such as Manchester and Newcastle, a huge number of letters have been sent by members of the public and a high proportion of councillors have responded positively.

Richard's story - renewed confidence outdoors

Richard's mobility gradually decreased after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. However, since finding Experience Community mountain trike group, Richard is able to go out for rides with others and rediscover the outdoors.

Video: watch Space for Inclusive Cycling in Bradford

On a cold winter's day in early February, inspired by CTC's Space for Cycling Campaign, Bradford Cycling 4 All headed out on to the city's roads to show just how much space other road users should be giving cyclists, especially users of adapted bikes who can be easily missed.

Bradford Cycling 4 All are an inclusive cycling group in West Yorkshire. Inspired by pictures of a similar stunt in Riga, the group fitted their bikes with cages custom made by a local artist - a colourful, physical reminder to fellow road users of the space cyclists need - and they headed out on to the streets of Bradford.
