We had some requests to join our google group (firstname.lastname@example.org). My apologies, I found that the group status had been set ‘ex directory’ – and could not be found by a search.
This has now changed: If you want to join the google group, please follow these steps:
- Go to http://groups.google.com and search for ‘merseycycle’.
- In the search results, select the group ‘merseycycle’ found at the top of the search results.
- Click on the link to ‘subscribe to this group’ and give the email address you want to use to join.
- You have to confirm your request to join from your email.
- We will receive your request and approve the process – and you’re now a member of the group.
But remember, this forum is foremost meant for members of the campaign. We do consider all applicants, but would encourage you to join our campaign first.
We are pleased to announce that bookings are now taken for the CTC and CycleNation conference, please go to our booking page to complete booking and registration.
CTC and CycleNation Autumn Conference
Save the date: 24th-25th October 2015
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.
The venue will be Blackburne House, right in heart of the world-renowned Georgian Quarter of Liverpool, for directions follow this link.
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.
