Space for Cycling ride with Shadow Transport Secretary!

20140514 - SpaceforCyclingcropped

The Labour Party Conference starts in a few days’ time at the Brighton Centre in Brighton.

We have arranged a short bike ride in support of “Space for Cycling”, and we will be joined by the new Labour Shadow Secretary of State for Transport, Lilian Greenwood.

Please come along and show your support for cycling and sustainable transport! Please tell friends and colleagues!

The ride will start opposite the Hotel Metropole on the seafront cycle track on Weds 30 September. We’ll meet there at about 08.10 ready for a prompt start when Lilian arrives.

There will be photos and a short ride e.g. to Madeira Drive and back.

The Space for Cycling logo is red and white, so if you can also wear any red clothes, that would make even more of an impression! The weather should be OK. Hope to see you there!

Start point:  On the seafront cycle track opposite the Brighton Hilton Metropole Hotel King’s Road, Brighton BN1 2FU

We are keen that all political parties support proper investment in cycling and better transport planning so that riding a bike becomes easier and safer for everyone!

New easy rides for 2014

Shed that lethargy! The new ‘Shed Rides’ are aimed at those slightly reluctant cyclists who have a bike buried under plant pots and half empty pots of paint somewhere in the garden shed! Organiser Howie Blanks said “We recognise that many people are put off cycling because of lack of confidence, traffic or perhaps worried about having to cycle too far out of their comfort zone. If you join one of our rides, you do so, safe in the knowledge that a Shed Bike Ride is over a shorter distance, generally on cycle paths and at a very comfortable pace, led by experienced cyclists.”Shedbikerides

Weather permitting, the first ‘Shed Ride’ is on Sunday, January 5th 2014. See:
