Promoting cycling

This article was published in 2003, in Newsletter 48.

There is much going on behind the scenes at the moment to promote cycling for transport and fun.

Bike Week (14-22 June): Preparation is well underway, with the emphasis particularly on helping those wanting to start cycling – see elsewhere in this Newsletter.

Adult Cycle Training: We are pleased to see that Cambridge’s Adult Cycle Training Scheme is being expanded, and new publicity materials are being produced.

Virtual Cycling Handbook: We are working with the Think Cycling project on a basic guide to starting cycling in Cambridge. The plan is to make it available by Bike Week.

Blue Cycle Signs: Simon Nuttall, at the City Council, is working on a project to replace Cambridge’s network of blue cycle signs, with the hope of also producing an improved cycle map of the city.
