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.

Oxfordshire Cycle Network, networks cyclist-focussed groups to make sure that Council Planning ticks all the boxes

Oxfordshire Cycle Network creates a network of support, with the help of CTC, so as to assist Oxfordshire County Council in producing their current strategy plan, which is focused on ensuring that the County’s transport system is set up right.

David Early, of Oxfordshire County Council, is currently involved in creating a Cycling Strategy for the County, as part of their Local Transport Plan (LTP) - LTP4, which is being produced to update the previous 2011 release. The Oxfordshire Cycling Network (OCN), CTC and other members, have been invited to participate in this, not just in the cycling strategy, but in other parts of the LTP, which link to cycling, and concern health, historic sights, air quality etc.
