We’ve told Brighton and Hove City Council that the gates appearing in Brighton must be removed and a better solution applied that doesn’t prevent cycling.
Our Campaigns Officer made the case at the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee in January.
Our deputation with text and photos is here.
See the webcast. The relevant bit starts at 0:24:00.
The gate below is at the junction of Natal Road and Dewe Road near the University of Brighton’s campus on the Lewes Road. It is permanently locked. No consultation was carried out on its placement. Not good enough!
Spare time over Christmas? Some ideas for activities below!
- Respond to the Transport for the South East consultation by Jan 10th . See Friends of the Earth for useful template if stuck!
- Sign the East Sussex petition to claw back funding for walking and cycling that was used to cover an overspend in road building in Hastings and Bexhill by Jan 14th . (You have to register and log in).
- Respond to Adur and Worthing’s Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan by Jan 6th . See Shoreham by Cycle’s description of the plan where there’s also a link to respond.
See you in 2020!
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.

Volunteer marshals needed urgently!
Would 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile: 07889 302229 Web: www.css.bike
Marshals needed because some volunteers have dropped out.
