Join this ride! Details of the XR Bike Swarm are on Facebook The meeting time is 10 am from Hove Lawns.
The event is hosted by Brighton Extinction Rebellion Bike Squad and Extinction Rebellion Brighton and is part of the Sound The Alarm at the Labour Party Conference event on Sunday 22nd September which is also Car Free Day.
Brighton is experiencing a traffic switchover in September as work progresses on the Valley Gardens scheme to improve the old disjointed walking and cycling facilities and alter traffic flows.
The Bugle Pub in St. Martin’s Street BN2 3HJ just off the Lewes Road in Brighton is the venue for our brief annual formal meeting. Arrive at 6.15 for a prompt 6.30 start. We will hear summary reports and elect roles for 2019-20. It’s a rule that only paid up Bricycles members can vote. This will be followed by a relaxing drink and chat open to all.
We have to do better on transport! We need a new approach that helps people cycle, walk and get to where they want to be without destroying the countryside and having traffic everywhere. Come along and support the campaign! Come to the conference at the Brighthelm Centre in Brighton on June 15th and hear about a new perspective.

The Sussex Pad crossing is the best, safe road crossing of the A27 for cyclists for miles around.
Most local cyclists know it well and use it to get from Shoreham across the A27 to Coombs and Steyning.
It’s also used by charity bike rides, pedestrians and horse-riders. But now it’s threatened with closure and only inferior alternatives have been put forward. We need your help to save the crossing.
