FUTURE OF GET WENDOVER CYCLING

posted 24 May 2015, 14:05 by Eli Kling

In July 2008 an already existing cycling support group adopted a formal constitution using the title Get Wendover Cycling, our objective being to encourage cycling locally and to have an active membership. 

Over the years we have been successful in organising the provision of cycle racks, supporting the adoption of local signed routes and running an annual family cycle ride. We have created a series of maps showing how existing routes can be improved. These are currently being considered by Bucks County Council for funding.

Recently we have found it difficult to recruit new committee members to take on the responsibilities of promoting the interests of the group and now for reasons of ill health, age and workload that included much travel abroad, the committee has decided to be less proactive. 

We plan to keep the website active (www.getwendovercycling.org) and report items of local interest to cyclists and offer assistance to anybody interested in taking up cycling. We will not be maintaining a formal membership, the website will be our means of contact and communication.

The groundwork for a local cycling campaign group will in other words be maintained and the outgoing committee members hope younger enthusiastic cyclists will emerge to take over GWC and bring new ideas and energy for promoting safe cycling in the Wendover area. If you have an interest in taking this on or know someone who does please get in touch with either:
