The 2015 joint annual Cyclenation-CTC conference was hosted by the Merseyside Cycling Campaign. The event took place at Blackburne House, in the heart of the Georgean quarter of Liverpool, on Saturday 24th October, 11:00-18:00. The venue was open from 10:30am for registration and refreshments.
For a map to the venue, please follow this link. Liverpool offers an excellent Cycle Hire Scheme, information on how to hire a bike and where the hire stations are can be found on the CityBike website.
As always, with an exciting list of speakers and expert workshop leaders the conference was an unmissable opportunity for local and national cycling campaigners to learn from each other on how to campaign effectively to promote cycling, and to get up to speed on the most topical political, policy and technical issues.
