SCR Infra Safari - SCR6 Benfield

We are cycling the Strategic Cycle Routes (SCRs). This year's dates are listed below. All dates have been set for Saturdays, and we hope you can join us. We will meet at Civic Centre, Ceremonial Way, at 10:00am. Each tour should not take longer than three hours. Join us for all or parts of it, or meet us afterwards for a coffee.

Please email us newcastle.cycling.campaign@gmail.com if you are coming so that we get an idea about numbers before the ride.

14 June - SCR 4 - Gosforth
12 July - SCR 1 - Newburn
9 August - SCR 6 - Benfield
13 September - SCR 7 - Walker

We've also had a look at which wards the Strategic Cycle Routes run through and will invite councillors to join us on the day.

Newcastle City Council promises to create these sections of the Strategic Cycle Routes in the next two years (status summer 2013):
CCAF SCRs

The ten-year plan is to create the full set of all seven Strategic Cycle Routes:

North Jesmond - hustings

Did you know that North Jesmond has a by-election on 28 August 2014? What better reason could there be to quiz the candidates about their plans, knowledge and interests!

Together with our Jesmond branch and our partners Living Streets Tyneside we are organising a pre-election hustings for the 14 August 2014 to be held at Jesmond Library to provide a space for exchange and engagement between the electorate and the politicians. Given the focus of the organising groups, the hustings will have a distinct transport theme. We believe transport touches on everyone's life and there is much to talk about. Recent plans and projects in Jesmond - Acorn Road, Brandling Park and Tankerville Terrace to name a few - show that things are 'moving on' and the debate and questions should be about the direction, transition, transformation and vision for Jesmond's transport future.

Invites have been sent to four candidates, and we are awaiting their replies.

There will be a set of pre-determined questions that we will give to the participating candidates in advance; and - time permitting - questions will also be taken from the floor.

Location: Jesmond Library, St George's Terrace, NE2 2DL
Starts: Thursday, 14 August, 2014 - 19:30
Ends: Thursday, 14 August, 2014 - 21:30
