CTC in England

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?

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 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.

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.

Dorset Cyclists’ Network - a model for nationwide campaigning

Dorset Cycling Network is concerned with bringing about change for cyclists by enabling individuals and institutions within Dorset to network, which yields an attractive model to deliver nationwide county collaboration.
The Dorset Cyclists' Network logo

Dorset Cyclists’ Network (DCN), which was founded in 1992, was designed to provide some cohesion between 11 South West towns, including Bournemouth and Poole, to campaign for cyclists’ needs, alongside CTC. It provides a very attractive example of how effectively multiple local authorities and key players can be lobbied when groups from smaller areas within a single county work in collaboration with one another to raise the profile of cycling across the county.
