Space for Cycling, Rally 22nd April

SAVE THE DATE!

22nd of April is International Earth Day. We want to show how important cycling is to us:

We are planning to be part of events that will be held all over the country, coordinated by CyclingUK and organised by local campaigning groups, like MCC.

Current thinking is to hold a mass rally at the Pier Head in Liverpool, from 11am on the 22nd of April. Please comment here or email with more ideas. We would also appreciate volunteers to help organise and promote the event.

Come on your bicycle, bring a banner or flag, or whatever you can think of, to show your love of cycling and to support our campaigning efforts.

Please note: As an attendee you take full responsibility for any travel arrangements and attend the event entirely at your own risk.

    Perhaps we can have a slow bike ride up and down the Strand a very busy road and so badly designed with to much space given over to vehicles,followed by a ride to the Crosby iron Men via the Vauxhall road with local councillors and liverpool stretscene employees and ask them why this road is in such a state, with a cycle lane that is basicly dangerous in places due to poor sight lines .

    Hi Paul

    It’s a good idea, but we neither have the time nor resources to organise a ride like that. If you want to organise a ride for people coming from the Wirral or along the Strand that would be fab.

    Great idea! I hope to join your campaign

    As you will read above this comment the Campaign received a letter of support from Councillor Walter Smith. Sadly Walter passed away shortly after this email so let us hope his legacy is that his predecessor offers his support.
