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 email@example.com or mobile: 07889 302229 Web: www.css.bike
Marshals needed because some volunteers have dropped out.

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.

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.
