The Spring CTC and Cycle Campaign Network conference on May 10 will examine how to mount a cycling campaign to further promote the use of bikes.
The Guardian’s Matt Seaton, the Chair of Cycling England Philip Darnton, Chief Executive of the London Cycling Campaign Koy Thomson, CTC’s Policy Coordinator Chris Peck, CTC Right to Ride rep and member of Sheffield Cycle Campaign Simon Geller, Coordinator of Cambridge Cycling Campaign Martin Lucas-Smith and MP for Cambridge David Howarth will discuss the future of cycling in the UK.
Cambridge Cycle Campaign also plans to launch its 2020 vision for the city and will give all delegates a copy of the 36 page colour brochure, which will be of practical use to people outside Cambridge.
The conference includes practical workshop sessions on marketing, online mapping, using the media and recruiting new members. There will also be social rides and events from Friday May 9 through to Sunday May 11.
CTC’s Cycling Development Officer – Local Campaigns Debra Rolfe said:”We would all like there to be more cyclists where we live and this conference offers help, advice and the magic ingredient of inspiration, so we can turn our dreams of a cycling culture into a reality”.
The conference is to be held at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge and tickets cost £16. For details and booking see www.camcycle.org.uk.
