March/April Bulletin

Well done to all those involved who got the cycle parking returned to KL Tuesday Market Place. It's the 20 spaces (two racks) back from before Christmas, but we hope we can get the other 20 returned before long, after a positive response to a question asked at the recent borough council meeting about having a parking strategy, rather than only a car parking strategy.

Detailed plans have been published for the West Winch Housing Access Road (likely to become the A10) and they're pretty pathetic for cycling, doing less than the minimum committed to in the Sustainable Transport Strategy, with at least four new substandard dangerous road crossings being added to the blue (A10) pedalway, still no good connection to Fair Green, and no serious measures to discourage motor traffic from using the old A10, as if drivers will continue to use the new road even when it's jammed. Please respond to the consultation: once we've got comments, they'll appear on

Spring is coming and we're already seeing an increase in people cycling again, probably thanks to the mild weather, despite a few recent weekend rides being rained off. Long may it continue and if you'd like to help make cycling easier around here, please get in touch. If you'd like a BUG sticker for your mudguard, ask MJ on a ride, or I think Pete still has some. And right now, pictures of any full or near-full cycle parking would probably be useful, if you see some.

As the weather continues to improve, we would like to get back to some listed named rides. The first on this bulletin is on Easter Sunday 31st of March. See details below.
