What do the cycle campaigning team do?

The CTC Cambridge cycle campaigning team is a group of local volunteers who work as part of Cycling UK's national cycle campaigning network. Our work is aimed at getting better cycling facilities for all types of cyclist in this region as the best way to encourage more people to cycle, and to cycle more each week. Our main efforts are pressing for top quality cycling provision in all new developments and steady pressure for maintenance and improvement of the existing cycling facilities. You can find out more about our local team, how to contact us, and how to get involved here.

Our local working partnerships: We work closely with Cambridge Cycling Campaign and with Sustrans. And we have a good working relationship with both the County council and City council cycling officers - we meet both of them regularly to discuss current projects and attend their cycling liaison meetings. We try to complement the work of Cambridge Cycling Campaign on many Cambridge City projects, but we also take a wider view and look at rural routes and other projects within the county. We have occasional regional meetings with other Cycling UK campaigners from neighbouring counties.

Our local objectives: Cambridge has high levels of cycling and relatively good cycling facilities. We think there is a broadly positive attitude to cycling in both the County Council and the City Council. But we think there is still enormous scope for improvements both within the city and beyond. We aim to work with the councils to try and get steady improvements for cyclists within their constraints of their limited budgets and our congested roads.
