Living Coast ride needs marshals on 19 May 2019

Volunteer marshals needed urgently!

IMG_7212Would you like to help marshal a local cycling event for a good cause? This year, the “Living Coast ride” is on Sunday, 19 May, 2019.

CSS (the organisers) will generously make a donation to Bricycles of £10 for every marshal who offers their support, so it’s a bit of a fundraiser for us, too!

If you would like to marshal, please contact Chris on chris@css.bike or mobile: 07889 302229 Web: www.css.bike

Marshals needed because some volunteers have dropped out.

Details of the ride are at: https://www.bht.org.uk/greater-brighton-cycle-challenge-2019/

Please sign the petition to save the Sussex Pad crossing over the A27 at Shoreham!

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.

Can you join us and take action?

Take action! Cycle safety: make it simple

Cycling UK needs your help to get more people cycling more safely.

The Government in Whitehall wants to hear what type of cyclist you are, and what you think would make cycling and walking not just safer, but also feel safer. They’re especially keen to hear from people who are less certain on our roads or who have been put off from cycling altogether.

You can use Cycling UK’s automated reply by on this important consultation:
