As part of the Girls Go Better By Cycle programme, CTC and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) are running a Girls Go Better workshop. CTC's Jayne Rodgers explains more.
To celebrate and mark International Women's Day on Sunday 8 March, in Greater Manchester I've been busy working on an exciting project with TfGM called Girls Go Better By Cycle, a programme of activities and events throughout March that will give Mancunian ladies all the information they will need to get out on their bikes and enjoy the early spring sunshine.
The last in the Cycle Chilterns series of winter Brewery Rides. Same format as usual; turn up at the brewery between 10am and 11am and grab a 'Beer Token'. Head out on your bike for a bit and do your own thing or follow our suggested route map and on your return you can exchange your 'Beer Token' for 'Actual Beer'. What's not to love?
Rides are open to everyone. Absolutely everyone. (Except under 18s for obvious reasons.)
Now in its sixth year, CTC Cornwall’s Equinox for ShelterBox spring event offers a choice of three road routes and two mainly off-road routes. The road routes start as usual from Devoran Village Hall. The start for the off-road routes and the mid-ride refreshment point for the road routes returns this year to Elm Farm, near Portreath.
We take a brief look at what local campaigners can do to boost political support for cycling in their area.
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.
