It is the end of the year, and what an exciting year it has been: we have a new brand, a new home, and with your help some new cycle infrastructure.

As it is the time for goodwill and buying people gifts, why not do the best thing possible and persuade them to join the Campaign? The more people we have behind us, the stronger our call for the best possible infrastructure will be. But if everybody you know is already a member, why not buy them some lovely gift cards with pictures of cycles on?

December also means that we have our Annual General Meeting. This year, we are honoured to have Brian Deegan speaking. He has been at the forefront of the cycling superhighway revolution in London, and will give us some insights into how London is progressing.

This is the season to be with friends and family. So why not join us at our festive social event on 19 December at 6.30pm at Thirsty, 46 Chesterton Road?

Of course, campaigning is our bread and butter, and we’ve been working hard on making Milton Road and Histon Road as great as possible, and have recently heard that a full ‘Dutch-style’ roundabout has been approved at the Queen Edith’s Way junction on the outer ring road. This is huge, and hopefully the first of many in the city and beyond.

Season’s greetings, and let’s look forward to an even better new year, with more, better and safer cycling for everybody.
