Annual General Meeting, Tuesday 29th October

This year's Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 29th October. Note that this is one week earlier than usual, to avoid the Bonfire Night events (there will be no meeting on 5th November).

We are pleased to welcome Carlton Reid as our visiting speaker. Carlton Reid is a cycling journalist and writer who is presently working on Roads Were Not Built For Cars, an online and printed book about the history of roads. In particular, he investigates a period in the late nineteenth century when, owing to the rise of the railways, roads had largely fallen into disuse and disrepair. Cycling clubs of the time campaigned for road maintenance and for good quality surfaces suitable for wheeled traffic, and this had the outcome that the roads were ready for motor vehicles when mass motoring began in the following decades.

The talk will be followed by the AGM proper. In particular, all committee posts are open for reelection. If you would like to contribute to the work of the campaign, do consider standing. You can be nominated at any time up until the beginning of the AGM. More information here.

The meeting will be at 7.30 for 8pm at the Friends' Meeting House, Jesus Lane, and all are welcome to attend.
