Money for cycling – your ideas wanted.

Calling all dreamers! There is some funding available for cycling in Colchester. Rosemary Wilkins, Essex County Council Cycling Officer, has tirelessly shared information about this over the last three months, and the deadline for applications is drawing near.

The Travel Plan Club has been gathering ideas, and has bid for schemes such as :

  • Funds for Colchester Cycling Campaign for saddle cover freebies and event reservations, to help their volunteers when attending local events.
  • Fred Slattern’s Bike Book Club – bringing in new people to cycling in Colchester
  • Cycle Challenge web based competitive event for local employers to get their employees cycling
  • Young Explorers’ Ride – a family event to Friday Woods
  • Bikeability – cycle training for adults
  • “double our cyclists” campaign for local¬†cyclists¬†to sign up a non-cycling friend
  • treasure trail for the summer
  • new cyclepaths at North Colchester Business Parks
  • “summer of cycling” local leaflet of events, also linked with Bike Week and to complement the Olympics.
Please contact us as soon as possible if you have an idea, and would like to make a bid.
