Around 70 members and guests joined us for the Camcycle 2022 AGM, which was held online via Zoom and broadcast live on Camcycle’s Facebook page. Trustees and staff reviewed 2021, shared plans for 2022 and presented the annual Camcycle awards, showing recognition to those who have worked hard for more, better and safer cycling over the last 12 months.
We were also delighted to welcome Adam Tranter, Cycling & Walking Commissioner for the West Midlands and CEO of Fusion Media, as our guest speaker. Adam talked about the challenges and successes he’s had in his area of the country and shared tips for engaging and persuading decision-makers and members of the public when working for change.

All the trustee candidates were elected to the board, as follows:
Camcycle Chair: Robin Heydon
Camcycle Treasurer: Peter Gotham
Camcycle trustees: Alessandra Caggiano, Matthew Danish, Sue Edwards, Christopher Loughlan and Martin Lucas-Smith
At the next trustee meeting, one of the general trustees will be co-opted to the role of Camcycle Secretary.
With some spaces remaining on our Board, we will be looking to co-opt some additional trustees in the coming months.
Join us! We welcome people from all skills and backgrounds and you don’t need any previous experience of being a trustee or working with a charity, just a passion for helping achieve more, better and safer cycling in the Cambridgeshire region. Get in touch and we’ll be happy to discuss the role further.
