Help build a strong voice for cycling in Winchester city and the surrounding area.

Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council are developing a 'movement strategy' which will shape how we get about the city for a generation. This is a great opportunity to make it easier to cycle for shopping, work or school.

Local people with an interest in cycling are getting together to get their voice heard. Come to this workshop to help agree a short statement of vision, agree a list of priorities for improvements, and recruit people who want to be involved in increasing the use of cycling as a form of local transport.

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).

We will be providing an update on the Winchester Movement Strategy and on how you can voice your suggestions, in future editions of WinACC News.
