Campaign Meeting

This photo shows the setup of the board that we used to ask people's opinions about the photo of the two types of cycle infrastructure.

Date: 

Thursday, July 2, 2020 - 19:00 to 21:00

In view of the need to avoid unnecessary contact during the COVID-19 pandemic, Push Bikes meetings are likely cancelled until this date, with meetings organised as necessary via Skype (please contact us if you have something you would like to raise).

Ordinarily we meet to discuss our campaign work and form strategy on the first Thursday of every month.   Normally meetings are held in the café area at the Midlands Arts Centre in Edgbaston, just off National Cycle Route 5.

Event type: 

Bikes, trikes and no automobiles: pedalling prodigies Howard and Esther Boyd

If you cycle in and around Birmingham regularly, chances are that Howard and Esther have had some influence on your bicycling life. From Howard’s work with CTC, the cycling safety team at RoSPA and consulting engineering firm Allott & Lomax (now owned by Jacobs Engineering), to Esther’s campaigning and their work with Push Bikes, they have been involved, either directly or indirectly, with the way the cycling landscape has evolved in Birmingham.

Reporting Infrastructure Issues - Using Cyclescape

Cyclescape is an online campaigning toolkit that is being developed to help cycle campaigners to work more effectively by creating an accessible record of infrastructure issues reported by campaigners. It also pulls in planning application data for campaigners to see in context, and allows the sharing of examples of best-practice from around the UK to assist the discussion of solutions to local problems.
