Return to Liverpool and join us for the weekend. Be it for discussion or debate on where & how cycling moves forward in 2016.
Merseyside Cycling Campaign will be host for the CycleNation and CTC autumn conference this year (2015). Cyclenation is a federation of local cycle campaign groups and there to help local groups campaign and to represent them at the national and international level; CTC is the national cycling charity and has championed the cause of cycling for well over a century.
We will publish more details (how to book, agenda, social events and rides) here in due course.
The actual conference will be from noon to 6pm on Saturday 24 Oct, at Blackburne House
If you arrive before Saturday, we are planning social drinks on Friday evening, time and venue tbc. There may be a Cyclenation EGM on Saturday morning (TBC) and there will be a meal and social evening on the Saturday evening. We also plan rides for the Sunday.
Please preregister from the CTC website using this link.
Closer to the date we will email you a confirmation of this pre-registration plus information on how to pay the attendance fee.
We now accept payments or donations to the cycling campaign via a simple online bank transfer using GoCardless.com. This is a safe and convenient way to support the campaign.
Unlike commonly used online donation systems like for example PayPal GoCardless.com expects you to type in your sort code and account number instead of a credit or debit card number. The payment is not instant and uses a one-off authorised direct debit transfer but saving us the higher card payment fees. Don’t worry, we will not be able to take further donations from you without your authorisation. Please consult GoCardless.com for further details.
Please find the donation button on the Membership page or use the button to the right.
The latest PedalPress for Summer 2015 is online now, and can be downloaded or read online by clicking here. Again, it is packed with information and stories about cycling and cycle campaigining in Merseyside. Thanks to all contributors and the editor-in-chief Helen Hebden.
We ran a stall in Princes Park on Sunday 7th September with great success, during the Sky Ride and before the official start of the Tour of Britain 2014, with lots of people on bikes diverting into the park. Lots of new members signed up, numbers soon to be announced here. In the meantime, check out these pictures:
If anybody can name the two racers on the last image, please add this to the comments.
