Local people with an interest in cycling are getting together to get their voice heard at a workshop on Thursday 9 November from 7 pm – 9 pm at the United Reform Church in Jewry Street, Winchester.

Winchester is a compact city, making cycling ideal for shorter journeys. Cycling provides independence, does not cause air pollution or create greenhouse gases, helps to reduce traffic congestion and is good for your health. The workshop organisers want cycling to be actively encouraged in Winchester.

The “Taking Cycling Seriously” workshop will set the scene, with a brief summary of the challenges that face cyclists in Winchester, and the cycling strategies already published by Winchester and Hampshire County Councils. The workshop will then focus on how to make cycling easier and safer, and how to influence the City of Winchester Movement Strategy being prepared by local councils.

The workshop is supported by Bespoke Biking, the City of Winchester Trust, Friends of the Earth Winchester, Winchester CTC (part of Cycling UK) and Winchester Action on Climate Change (WinACC)
