Berwick Cyclists

Exploring England and Scotland by bicycle in a day couldn't be easier, as Tony Houghton CTC member and founder of CTC group Berwick Cyclists explains in his new booklet 'Five Cycle Rides from Berwick upon Tweed'.
Berwick Cyclist's

CTC member Tony Houghton, founder of recently-formed Berwick Cyclists, an affiliate group of CTC,  has been championing cycling on both sides of the English/Scottish border for many years. The new group is setting a precedent in promoting cycling in the local area. A recent article in the local paper has elevated the group's profile and is making local cyclists sit up in their saddles and join in his rallying call to make cycling a larger part of the Berwick community and economy.

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.

Bike Club Central Update

Bike Club Central has been getting its name out there across Fife, Falkirk, Stirling and Clacks, making some really good connections and partnerships. And riding bikes!

It has been a busy few months since starting in October, so it’s a good time for a Bike Club Central update.

In December, I attended Cycling Scotland’s four-day Cycle Trainer Course. The course looks at delivering the Bikeability scheme, which provides the skills and confidence needed for children to ride safely on the roads – something that we hope the project’s Young Leaders will help to deliver.

Glasgow Bike Club Update

It’s been a busy few weeks catching up with all the Glasgow Peer Mentors, finding out who braved the weather on their bikes and who chose to hibernate over Christmas and New Year. Everyone was dead keen to get stuck back into some training and move forward with Bike Club.
