September was a fantastic month for cycling in Cambridge as we held our first Cambridge Festival of Cycling. The events were excellent, and everybody I’ve spoken to about it has praised the organisation.

We have the AGM coming up soon – the formal announcement is inside. Please reserve the day, plan to come along, and consider standing as a trustee of the charity.

I’d like to give a huge shout-out to two people who did so much over the summer. Firstly, we have to thank Emma Pritchard, our first ever intern, who helped with the cycling festival and also did so much work on the Cambridge cycling survey (see article) and street cycle parking project (see later in this Newsletter). We also have to thank Ellie Gooch who spend the summer volunteering at Camcycle. You can read her article on bike-sharing. I wish them both luck for the future.

Inside, we shine a spotlight on some of the other enthusiastic volunteers who have been involved with the Cambridge Festival of Cycling and other aspects of Camcycle’s work. We recently celebrated winning Best Charity Magazine at the Cambridge Community Magazine Awards with a get-together for our newsletter volunteers and a planning meeting for our future plans for the publication, which is one of our key campaigning tools. With several long-standing volunteers standing down, now is a great time to get involved and share your skills – read more about how you can volunteer in the article .
