September News

Cycling is getting a second year of extra funding! After last year's Active Travel Fund paid for an upgrade at the crossing near KES and removal of the stupid gate and slalom, this year Norfolk and Lincolnshire have each been given over £300,000 from a Capability Fund, while Cambridgeshire's
allocation was withheld until they promised not to rip cycle lanes out prematurely again (like they did in Peterborough). While that's useful to keep things ticking over, we're hoping that the £25m Lynn Town Deal will deliver the 8 new and upgraded cycle route sections mentioned in it, and that future Active Travel Fund rounds will bring millions not thousands across the fens.

Are you in Cambridgeshire? Do you have time to tell politicians what we need to increase cycling? Please email bug@klwnbug.co.uk  to volunteer for the Cambridgeshire Active Travel Forum. We'll support you with advice and documents as much as we can. Things like the Fenland Cycling etc
Improvement Strategy, Wisbech Access Strategy and March Area Transport Strategy are moving forward and we want cycling voices to be heard.

eCargo Bike Grants are available again. If you know a business that could be helped by getting an electric cargo bike, please ask them to get more information from Energy Saving Trust at https://energysavingtrust.org.uk/grants-and-loans/ecargo-bike-fund/
