Space for Cycling

This is the name for the newly-launched national campaign for better cycle infrastructure.  The leaflet looks to have some really good arguments in it, examples of good infrastructure etc, so worth a look if you’re a) interested b) campaigning c) get collared by people who complain about cycle facilities, what Dynamo is/isn’t doing, or cyclists sharing with pedestrians etc.

You can use their website to ask your local coucillor to pledge their support for Space for Cycling.

Its 6 themes tie in well with our aims I think:

  1. Protected space on main roads, e.g. the A6 campaign
  2. Removing through motor traffic in residential areas
  3. Lower speed limits
  4. Cycle-friendly town centres e.g the City Centre campaign
  5. Safe routes to school
  6. Routes through green spaces e.g. the Heysham Moss Link campaign

    Dynamo have got involved in Space for Cycling by writing to local Councillors asking for their support for our proposed Heysham – Lancaster traffic free path. As supportive responses are received we will let you know. Could you contact your local Councillor?
