Head of Fundraising, Richard Winrow said "we want the whole town to get behind this event and come along to have some fun, as the sight of hundreds of Santas taking part will add to the enjoyment for participants and spectators alike. Although the main aim is to raise funds for charities, we also want to put the FUN into FUNdraising".

GET ON YOUR BIKE Charity event. My name is James Macdonald. I am putting on a cycle sportive event on Sunday 22nd September that starts and finishes in Ditchling that I am hoping will attract 150-200 cyclists in its first year.
Although absolutely everyone is totally welcome the sort of cyclists I am hoping to attract are the sort of people who are new to cycling and keen to get involved in a fun and different new Sportive,maybe with a view to then joining a cycling club afterwards.
This is why I am providing a cup and a crate of red wine as a prize to the largest and friendliest cycling club represented on the day. This will be decided by the marshals and myself during the day.
I am also hoping that this Sportive will help to raise some funds for lots of local and national charities. I set up the charity "Pass It On Africa" in 2005 and I am hoping some of our fundraisers will sign up to this event. I got into cycling a few years ago after cycling from Lands End to John O Groats to fundraise for our charity. www.pioafrica.org.uk I would really love your cycling club to be involved in this year's event. I could also really do with some help promoting this event and would really appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to hopefully hearing from you soon.
Many thanks

Accessibility versus amenity – how the bicycle can solve the dilemma “As Easy As Riding A Bike”  Posted on May 10, 2013 Yesterday I gave a brief presentation at a Town Centre Opportunities event in London; the theme of the conference was on revitalising urban space and keeping €˜The High Street thriving.....

The Folkestone-Dungeness Cycleway Petition
"There is fantastic potential for a 20-mile seafront cycleway from Folkestone Harbour to Dungeness, a high grade recreational facility for visitors and residents alike that will boost health, tourism, transportation and the Shepway economy.
Like the safe and scenic coastal cycleways of North Kent and Nord Pas de Calais, a dedicated cycleway from Folkestone to Dungeness would put Shepway back on the tourist map - a destination attraction for cyclists, be they long distance riders or a family with bikes on a day-trip from London.
The Folkestone-Dungeness Cycleway is the ambition of Damian Collins, MP for Folkestone and Hythe. The campaign for its realisation is headed by Cycle Shepway, the pressure group for better cycling that must lobby, cajole and propel our authorities into coordinated action.
This petition will be presented to Shepway District Council, Kent County Council, the Environment Agency, the Ministry of Defence and other interested parties such as town and parish councils." http://cycleshepway.org.uk/
I hope you dont mind the intrusion but if you can ask as many co-workers etc the more signatures the merrier! The Petition is at this link:

BLIND SPOT PETITION Click here BAN ALL BLIND SPOTS is a spontaneous movement to gather 100,000 signatures in order for the problem of blind spots on lorries, coaches, buses and vans on the highways to be discussed and dealt with in the House of Commons. The movement seeks to have mandatory technology installed on vehicles to eliminate blind spots and protect cyclists and motorists.

  Promenade and Sea front Bye Laws:

  • On July1st 2013 Rother District Council designated the Promenade from Galley Hill to West end of West Parade a Route for Cyclists. Debate was whether this should be shared or segregated. The consensus is that by having a shared route cyclists will slow down to give Pedestrin Priority which is how it should be and will remain so.  This could be revoked at any time should cyclists prove a nuisance. After a years trial there were no incidents hence the decision to allow cyclists to use the promenade responsibly.

HISTORY: The current bye laws which date back to 1912 have been reviewed, our views along with others were considered with a positive outcome. The end result is that the Working Group recommended to Scrutiny Committee that for a trial period of one year Cycling will be allowed on the whole length of the promenade with pedestrian priority.  The Bye law working group’s review minutes of January 11th 2010 can be read on the RDC web site link:Rother District Council.  These give a good background to history and considerations in allowing cycling on the sea front.  The recommendation from that meeting is that cycling on the promenade should be allowed, subject to further consideration on specific areas. It was not always easy to obtain an agreement from everyone to allowing cycling and although we have a years trial it is important that it is shown to be a success. We gave a presentation to the Services and Scrutiny Committee on 7th February 2011 explaining why cycling should be encouraged and the Byelaw changed to meet the 21st century.  Three students from the Bexhill Youth Council  gave a passionate talk explaining why they would like it changed and this swayed some to move in favor. The old and still current Byelaw says at present “Nobody shall without reasonable excuse cycle on the promenade” this is suitably ambiguous.  The next process is to have the change sanctioned by Full Council then sent to Parliment for approval and finally advertised locally, then the year trial will start.

Connect 2 St.Leonards to Glyne Gap: This has been open and proving a great success with a huge increase in both walkers and cyclists. information can be found on this Sustrans link: http://www.sustransconnect2.org.uk/resources/Connect2%20MoU%20Signing%20Presentation.ppt#256,1,Slide 1.  Full planning permission was granted 22nd September 2010, It will be a shared use design, with no one group with priority over another. We are on the steering group to assist with the design and implementation of this fantastic scheme.  The scheme is now almost complete with initial opening mid December, launch in Jan 2012 and a grand opening in April 2012. The portrait bench is up by Glyne Gap and surfacing should take place w/b 28th Nov. Congratulations to ESSC and look forward to the grand opening in 2012.

Pebsham Country Park: This is currently being discussed between ESCC, Hastings Council and Rother District council and we are awaiting replies as to when and where the cycle routes will be and how they will link up with the above two projects. More needs to be done to the existing paths so they are usable also linking with other routes.

Bexhill Cycle Network: This was conceived in 1999, designed between the Bexhill Cycle Forum and ESCC around 2005. Details can be found on their web site, however this as we have found on our Tuesday summer evening rides has not been implemented. Although nothing has yet happened we have a chance revisit and implement some if it with the Local Sustainable Transport Fund bid and include some in the Local Transport Plan 3.  Also with the Bexhill Town Centre Regeneration Project again some transport measures may be included.

National Cycle Network Route 2: This the seafront route  is our Cooden Drive advisory cycle lane, which allows for vehicle parking. Parking in the cycle lane, advisory or not, makes it just like any other road, so it is of marginal benefit mainly as giving a perception of reduced width road helping to reduce speeding. The NCN2 goes along past the Star Inn to Pevensey roundabout.  I found it better to travel over the level crossing at Normans Bay to Pevensey if going into Eastbourne.  However the promenade could be made as part of the NCN2 ???

Local Transport Plan 3: Please click here to read our response to the East Sussex County Council LTP3

What we are campaigning for is that all the authorities responsible for these projects, routes or networks work together and provide a 21st century safe, sustainable alternative to motor travel.
