CCN/CTC Cycle Planning

Twice a year the Cycle Campaign Network (CCN), in conjunction with the CTC, organises conferences to update campaigners on latest developments in cycle planning and campaigning. These conferences are a good way to find out what’s going on, and to meet people from other cycling campaigns.

The next conference will take place on Saturday 13 October 2001 in Chesterfield.

Presentations will include:

  • Green Transport Plans and promoting cycling to Health Authorities
  • CTC’s objectives regarding off-road cycling
  • Business analyst Malcolm Wardlow will be challenging the notion that cycling is inherently dangerous
  • Wheel Alternatives, a York based company, will be demonstrating how they have successfully converted over seventy businesses to their cycle haulage services.
