CYCLISTS' RIGHTS

Cycling UK (CTC) have a range of national campaigns for walking and cycling and cycle safety. Their Head of Advocacy and Campaigns is becoming involved with local groups in a personal capacity.  Cycling UK have a Local Cycling Campaign Network and the Maidstone Cycle Campaign Forum (MCCF) is affiliated to this.  British Cycling’s campaign ‘Transform Britain. Choose Cycling’ is their mission to make big changes – better places to cycle, segregated cycle tracks and well-connected networks with agreed standards so that they can be used safely. 

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has stated that pedestrians, cyclists and people using public transport should be given priority when new roads are built or upgraded.

The SFACC Rights Officer role is to:

  • Establish and build relationships with Rights/Campaigning Officer(s) in British Cycling and Cycling UK.
  • Contribute to local and national campaigns on behalf of SFACC to promote the improvement of the rights of cyclists, cycling infrastructure, legislation and safety to improve the experience of cyclists both leisure and commuting.
  • Identify, raise and report on issues to the SFACC Director of Welfare.
  • Liaise and work with other SFACC club officials and members to promote the improvement of rights for cyclists.
Your Club Needs You - active involvement of SFACC Members in local and national campaigns is needed.  If you are willing to contribute please contact me directly - email rights@sanfairyanncc.co.uk
