The assocation of UK cycle campaigning groups, Cyclenation (of which LCC is a member), is holding its next cycle campaigning conference in Portsmouth on Saturday 17 April 2010.

The conference, hosted by the Portsmouth Cycle Forum and organised in conjunction with CTC, is a chance to learn the secrets of successful cycle campaigning and meet other people who are passionate about creating a cycling culture in the UK.

Portsmouth was the first city in the UK to adopt a 20mph limit across most of its street network, leading the way for other towns and cities across the country.
The speakers at the conference include:

  • Graham Smith The pros and cons of shared space
  • Simon Moon & Cllr Lynne Stagg Portsmouth’s 20 mph speed limit
  • Cllr Ian Hudspeth Oxford’s plans for 20mph
    Marc Clothier from Sussex Police on ‘Operation Crackdown’
  • Paul Kitson (Russell Jones & Walker) Does the law adequately protect cyclists?

There will also be workshops on:

  • 20’s Plenty
  • bike parking
  • working with local authorities
  • working with young people
  • cycle surveys
  • Active Travel Strategy

Cyclenation’s chairman Andre Curtis said, “The main topics covered this year are very relevant to increasing everyday cycling. The speakers will, I am sure, help inspire campaigners and professionals alike, in particular to follow Portsmouth’s lead with 20mph.”
