Car free family cycling comes to the Downs

The excitement is building towards the first Cycle Sunday event on 19 April. It is hoped as many of us as possible can come and join in for a morning of car free cycling around the Downs.

None of this would have happened without the 38 Degrees petition which 4,600 signed at the end of last year. It was clearly the thing that swayed the Downs Committee as it showed them what strong support there is for the principal of safer cycling up on the Downs.

If you are coming, then please do sign up for the event (it only takes a few clicks and really helps to plan the event effectively) Please email the link to friends, post it on your FB page or tweet it if you are into that kind of thing (short URL –

The event is SUPER early on a Sunday morning (8.00 – 11am). This is because this is the quietest time on the Downs and is aimed to cause the least disruption to others such that if the first event goes well, they hope to be able to finish a little later at future events.

You might consider coming to be a steward for an hour on the day. More stewards makes for a better, safer event. If interested please email [email protected]
